The succulent and distinct taste of a fresh Olympia oyster. The sweet, mellow, nutty flavor of dry jack cheese intensified by years of aging. The aromatic juiciness of a pixie tangerine. The richly flavored meat of the bourbon red turkey. Chances are you’ve never experienced any of the palatable pleasures mentioned here because these food sources are almost extinct, and along with them a slice of culture, and the appreciation for diverse and traditional foods.
But, then again, there may still be hope.
