Join us for a discussion on the culture and history of a wide variety of Utah foods including green Jell-O, fry sauce, and (believe it or not ) alcohol! The book’s editors share their discoveries on the unique relationship between food and identity among Utah’s various religious, ethnic, and subregional groups, and explore some reasons for the state’s particularly vibrant self-awareness of its foodways.
