For the last 20 years, Megan Smith of St. Anne the Tart, has lived and spent much of her time in the hills and hollows of Eastern Kentucky as a writer and an advocate for the mountain arts community. Only recently did she discover the strong connection between Appalachia and Dayton—often referred to as the “end of the Hillbilly Highway”. In this class, we’ll explore some of the foods of Appalachia. From sorghum that comes from a hollow near Lillie Cornett Woods to shucky beans dried in Letcher County, we’ll not only get to taste unique ingredients to the region, but you’ll also learn how to recreate some of the most treasured, comforting recipes of the mountains right in your own home this holiday season.
