Houston has become known as a food mecca, but its roots/routes are drawn directly from its diverse communities. Food & Family will explore the supporting role each of these domains – food and family – play in enhancing the significance of the other. After all, family is the elemental unit of human social life and food is the essential component of not just its survival, but its capacity to thrive.

The tour focuses on the hardships of daily life in the early 1820s. A costumed interpreter explains and demonstrates important facets of textile production on the frontier - spinning, dyeing, and weaving in addition to the regular domestic activities of that era.  Other areas being addressed include building construction methods and tools, the empressario system of colonization in Texas, and land grants.
