Author and food historian William Woys Weaver will present, “The Roughwood Table: Heritage Seeds, Heritage Foods and the Future of Regional Cuisine,” on Tuesday, April 30 at Delaware Valley University. The event will be held at 7 p.m. in the University’s Life Sciences Building auditorium. All are welcome and there is no cost to attend. Guests do not need to register in advance.

Described as the “Merlin of American regional cookery,” Weaver is an internationally known food historian and the author of 17 books. He is a rare four-time winner of the prestigious International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP)/Julia Child Cookbook Awards. His most recent gold medal was for “Culinary Ephemera,” a beautifully illustrated survey of old food advertising materials. His 1993 award-winning cookbook “Pennsylvania Dutch Country Cooking” is in the anthology “100 Great American Cookbooks of the 20th Century.” Weaver’s book, “Dutch Treats: Heirloom Recipes from Farmhouse Kitchens,” was published by St. Lynn’s Press of Pittsburgh in September 2016 and a new edition of his classic, “Heirloom Vegetable Gardening,” has been published by the Quarto Press with new photos and expanded text.

“It is an honor to host William Woys Weaver on our campus,” said Professor of Horticulture Dr. Jackie Ricotta. “Anyone who is interested in cooking, farming, or the food system should attend this event. Guests will have a chance to learn about how food goes from seed to table while gaining a deeper understanding of the history of the plants that provide color and flavor for the meals they enjoy.”

The lecture is being sponsored by the Delaware Valley University Food Systems Institute and the Henry Schmieder Arboretum.  There will be light refreshments starting at 6:30 p.m. for guests who would like to arrive early to socialize and network with members of the local community.
