This year Texas Folklife is concluding our ambitious survey of foodways, or food traditions, in the Lone Star State. Our belief is that by learning about the diverse stories of Texas traditions of cooking, mealtimes, gardening and agriculture, and festivals and holiday foods, we will find out much more about the enduring and evolving traditions of our state.
We invite you to take “a place at the table” and tell us about your family’s favorite dishes, or the work you do to produce food for your family or for the market. Over the past few years we have been traveling around the state visiting festivals, conducting interviews and meeting Texans from all cultural backgrounds with a story to tell. Your food story could become part of new exhibits, radio and television documentaries and placed as a legacy for future generations in Texas libraries.
Please join us by answering a few questions about the foodways of your family, community, and region.
Remember to click "DONE" at the bottom of the survey to submit your answers.
