The Southern Food and Beverage Museum (SoFAB) was founded in 2004 by Liz Williams, who wanted a place where the intersection between culture and food could be studied. Through exhibits, classes, library, entrepreneurships, and podcast, Liz, SoFAB and the National Food & Beverage Foundation are dedicated to the discovery, understanding and celebration of food, drink and its related culture and folklife in America and the world.

Liz joins Tracy for this Eating at a Meeting episode to discuss how food and beverage are culture.
