“Installation artist Laura Parker is offering an entirely new way to connect with food. Her traveling event ‘A Taste of Place’ seeks to bring grower and consumer together by showing consumers that the ground their food grows in or on has a deep effect on how the resulting food tastes.
How many of us have really contemplated dirt? How many of us have really considered the relationship that geography and soil health have to the flavor of the food that we eat? This is the point of Parker’s project.” See also http://webecoist.com/2009/12/26/salt-and-pepper-of-the-earth-soil-qualities-in-food/.
