Ark of Taste Holiday Collection

Ark of Taste Holiday Collection

The dishes that will grace the tables of holiday feasts across the country, made from treasured and celebratory recipes, tell the story of generations. This year we invite you to make the traditional foods of the USA part of your own tradition.

Uncle Ed’s famous pecan pie will gain a new layer of complexity when made with American Native Pecans, and holiday party cocktails take on a new sparkle with a splash of Cranberry Ginger Shrub. The flavors of the Ark of Taste are as robust, surprising and eclectic as this country we share.

Slow Food USA and Heritage Foods USA have teamed up to curate a very special collection of foods from the Ark of Taste to create a memorable holiday feast.

These foods carry the histories of places and peoples who have made this land home. Sourced from good, clean, fair producers, these foods are also building a more sustainable, delicious and diverse world for all of us.
