A Food Anthropologist

Terroir, the tastes that emerge from the natural environment where a food is cultivated, is most often associated with wine—at least here in the United States.

We recently caught up with Trubek, formerly the executive director of the Vermont Fresh Network and now an assistant professor at the University of Vermont.
