Preserves: A Manitoba Food History Podcast explores the rich history of Manitoba food and the people who make it, sell it, and eat it. Preserves considers the cultural, social, and commercial aspects of Manitoba food and what it means to us. The podcast is produced by the Manitoba Food History Project research team and hosted by Kent Davies (Oral History Centre) and food and business historian, Janis Thiessen (University of Winnipeg).
Preserves is a part of the The Manitoba Food History Project, an oral history project based out of the University of Winnipeg, funded by a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada Insight Grant, together with support from Diversity Foods, the University of Winnipeg Research Office, and the UW Oral History Centre. The goal of our project team is to produce a comprehensive history of food manufacturing, production, retailing, and consumption in the province of Manitoba from 1870 to the present day through digital scholarship and public history.
