American Tastes: Borscht Belt

The Borscht Belt was a haven for generations of Jewish Americans, providing relaxation, dancing, and laughs at hotels and resorts. This Skidmore student, who will remain anonymous, spoke with her family about how the Borscht Belt influenced them. Produced for the course American Tastes.

American Tastes is a course with Dr. Beck Krefting at Skidmore College, an interdisciplinary exploration of the evolution of US cuisines, foodways (these are diverse) and food politics.
