The The Greater Midwest Foodways Alliance has announced the theme for this year’s symposium: Beef: From Plains to Plate: Follow the cattlemen’s trail to savory Midwest Beef Traditions. If you think you have something to say on the topic of “Midwest beef foodways, from the desolate plains to meat processors who packed, wrapped and shipped their meat provisioning the global market,” the call for entries is open — or you can just attend the event, held at Kendall College on October 23-24 (for those carnivores out there keeping score, yes, that’s the same weekend as Baconfest Chicago).
