Fried chicken and spaghetti with red gravy. Cassava with cane syrup. Biryani with cold beer. Join SFA in Bentonville, Arkansas, home of Crystal Bridges, the vanguard American art museum, and Cricket for America, the promoter of all things wicket. Northwest Arkansas is a place of unsuspected complexity, defined over generations by new arrivals who land here in search of work and promise.

Italian immigrants arrived here after quitting the cotton fields of the Delta. Mexican immigrants arrived here to work chicken plant jobs. Now South Asian people now arrive here to work software jobs. Labor needs have driven change in this complex corner of the South.

Drawing on scholars like Angie Maxwell of the Diane Blair Center of Southern Politics and Society at the University of Arkansas; inspired by Jennifer Jensen Wallach, a native of this region and author of Every Nation Has Its Dish, fed by chefs like Matt McClure of the Hive and the Tang family of Tang's Asian Market; you will explore how the want for work and the need for labor has defined this place and its people.

Tickets include all presentations, a guided tour of the art museum, and six meals. Travel and lodging are separate expenses and are the responsibility of the attendee. Tickets, minus a $100 cancellation fee, may be refunded before May 15. Email info@southernfoodways.org to request the refund. No refunds will be issued after May 15, 2019.
