An expert on food and culture, Trubek discusses the significance of linking taste with place and the concept of terroir. Originally a French term, terroir is most commonly used when talking about wine to denote the effect that a local environment can have on the flavor and taste of a certain variety of wine. Loosely translated it means “a sense of place.” According to Trubek, this sense of place can and should be applied here in the US and in particular, to our small-scale Vermont artisan farmers.
