Foodways Texas is a new organization with the mission of promoting, preserving and celebrating the diverse food cultures of Texas.
And what could be more Texas than pie?
You can sample some of Earl Abel’s famous pies during the Pearl Farmers Market on Saturday. All 16 of the restaurant’s award-winning pies will be on display, and samples will be available. In addition, Foodways Texas will be screening one of its first film projects. The short film features Tony Sanchez, baker and pie maker at Earl Abel’s for 50 years.
The restaurant was a fixture for decades on the southeast corner of Broadway and Hildebrand. It is now at 1201 Austin Hwy. at the Terrell Plaza Shopping Center, under the ownership of Roger Arias.
The pie social and coffee begin at 10 a.m. and run until 1:20 p.m. in the Studio at the Full Goods Building at the Pearl, 200 E. Grayson St. The film will be shown at 10:30 a.m.
This is the time to learn about, and join, the new Foodways Texas.
