For millenia food has seen dramatic shifts from cultivation to preparation. Because food and eating are intertwined in the human experience, it only makes sense that it travels from our plate to our art. 

This year the Fayetteville Roots Festival focused more intently on food, with added culinary-centered events and chefs getting equal billing as performers. 

The Walmart NW Arkansas Championship returns to Rogers next week. The LPGA tournament features various community events including BITE NW Arkansas, a three-day food festival that highlights local restaurants like Saiwok Vietnamese Street Food.

Much of the fall edition of Edible Ozarkansas focuses on the art of cheesemaking. Editor Amanda Cothren gives us details on the latest edition, and featured cheesemaker Kent Walker talks about getting his start making cheese, how mold is good for cheese, and about what exactly a "cheese cave" is.
