What makes the Pittsburgh “food scene”?
Panelists will discuss what is driving Pittsburgh’s food and beverage innovation. They will share their stories about the unique qualities of our region’s farming, dining, and drinking systems. Visiting guests will also share their experiences and personal narratives about food and culture beyond our region. We’ll aim to learn from one another about how we all can make our region an inclusive place to eat and drink.
