At this all-encompassing festival, even humble clay gets its day. Playing an essential supporting role in the culinary world since 10,000 B.C., clay holds the power to impart flavor and character and retain moisture and temperature when molded into a vessel to store, carry, and cook food and drinks. Go straight to the source—the working ceramics factory of East Fork Pottery—for a fascinating dinner experience shaped by North Carolina’s deep pottery heritage. Learn how pots are made and try your hand at cooking in clay.
