There is no better way to celebrate the official start of summer than with a fresh, food-focused event! Senator John Heinz History Center is hosting Hometown-Homegrown for its fourth year on June 27. The event utilizes all five floors of the museum, creating a uniquely historical and culinary experience. From 10 a.m.-3 p.m., guests can sample fresh fare from local chefs and learn cooking tips via demonstrations. Fitness activities, live entertainment, and the museum’s exhibits are bonuses. “Hometown-Homegrown is one of, if not the only, foodie event in the region to showcase the rich culinary history of Pittsburgh by meshing some of the city’s food institutions with today’s up-and-coming culinary stars, including Wholey’s Fish Market, Soergel Orchards, Legume, and Good L’Oven Cookie Shop,” says Senior Communications Manager Brady Smith. Visitors are encouraged to bring along gently used cookbooks to exchange for new ones at the Hometown-Homegrown Cookbook Exchange in the Great Hall. “The History Center is a natural host for such an event, since we’ve been preserving the region’s past since 1879,” says Smith. “But most importantly, the food is simply delicious!” — Colleen Ferguson
