The Makah Ozette Potato settled its roots in Northwest Washington’s Neah Bay more than 200 years ago, and lives a story of cultural connection and tradition. The vegetable is one of just a few foods in the United States that is listed as a Presidia, a designation by the Slow Food Foundation of Italy, which recognizes endangered or culturally significant foods. KBCS Contributor Jennie Cecil Moore speaks to Slow Food Seattle founder Gerry Warren, Lark restaurant owner and chef John Sundstrom to share the history of this waxy fingerling and talk menus.
