Rowan Jacobson Will Talk, Eat American Terroir At Savoy on Tuesday


In the newly published American Terroir, Rowan Jacobson writes about how the French concept of terroir, or “the taste of a place,” applies to a variety of American foods. This Tuesday, November 9, diners will have a chance to eat Jacobson’s words at Savoy, which is hosting a dinner featuring American ingredients whose terroir is central to their quality.

The $105 four-course menu will include Spud Island mussels, Flying Pigs Farm pork, and Wellfleet and Washington State Olympia oysters. The dinner, which starts at 6:30 p.m., will be accompanied by a discussion with Jacobson, who will read excerpts from his book. Reservations can be made by calling Savoy.
