Event Details

Can you give an example of Ozark foods? Can you think of a positive portrayal of the Ozarks in popular culture? Bulrush restaurant was created to explore Ozark foods, but took a deep-dive into the origin of this lesser known cuisine or culture. Three years in and the staff have explored genealogy of free slaves, agricultural crops lost for generations, and the most extensive research to date on the role of Missouri wines in saving the French wine industry in the mid-1800s. Rob Connoley, chef and owner of Bulrush restaurant in Midtown, holds two James Beard Foundation honors, along with recognition by the Julia Child Foundation, Forbes magazine and the BBC. Rob was born and raised in St Louis with family roots in Ste. Genevieve since the 1830s. Rob is the author of Acorns and Cattails: A Modern Foraging Cookbook of Forest, Farm and Field.
