Taste of Appalachian Foods

Alex Coffman, WVU Extenstion Agent for Grant County and local food blogger will offer tastes of local and traditional Appalachian food at the craft show, located at Moorefield High School. On Saturday at 11am, Alex will share historical information about food in our local area, along with information on forage and preservation.

Alex is a West Virginia native with a deep connection to nature and local foods. Her background with WVU Extension has enhanced her food preservation knowledge and her residence in the Potomac Highlands gives her great access to wild food and forage. Alex is also a history graduate from WVU with a BA in history and an MA in public history. Visit her during Heritages Weekend to sample some local Appalachian cuisine and learn about the history of West Virginia foods.
