In October, Glynwood partnered with the Culinary Breeding Network to host the 2023 Variety Showcase, a one-of-a-kind event uniting plant breeders, seed growers, farmers, chefs, bakers, distillers, retailers, and all those who share a deep passion for the local food system. This year's event highlighted culinary grains, including wheat, rye, oats, barley, and corn. Nearly 200 attendees enjoyed 40+ tasting tables, each featuring a chef-prepared dish highlighting an important variety. Our heartfelt appreciation to the incredible curators and culinary partners whose work are shaping the future of food
This event was partially funded by the USDA-NIFA-OREI projects Value-Added Grains for Local and Regional Food Systems II and Developing Multi-Use Naked Barley for Organic Systems II, and brought to you by Glynwood’s Grains & Staples program.
