The Oklahoma Center for the Humanities at The University of Tulsa has announced its annual class of fellows for the 2016-17 academic year. The 10 individuals selected from applications submitted earlier this year include TU faculty and students as well as members of the Tulsa community. They are engaged in wide-ranging creative and research activities surrounding the idea of food – a topic the center will explore through lectures, symposia, public debates, readings, shared meals and exhibitions.
A taste of Tallgrass
Tallgrass Prairie Table is located in the heart of the historic Blue Dome district in downtown Tulsa. Serving Modern American cuisine that is both globally inspired and locally sourced. Tallgrass partners with local farms, dairies, ranches, and breweries to offer ingredients with integrity and community values. We are committed to improving our surrounding neighbors and friends through small farm economics, slow food principles and volunteerism.
As a women owned and operated business, we encourage diversity and inclusion within our community and businesses. In a male dominated industry we are humbled and honored to have the opportunity to break the mold and push past barriers of gender, race and religion. Food brings us all together, it's important for everyone to have a seat at the table.
We take our focus on farms and family owned businesses very seriously. Our commitment goes beyond the farmers market. We sit down with our farmers over coffee with seed catalogs and discuss next season's plantings. We buy bulk when certain things are in season to preserve the harvest. It's so important to know the dirt and the story of your food. Our culinary team does a bang up job of showcasing that importance and story on every plate.
Our kitchen operates through shared thought, mutual respect, and a healthy dose of chaos. Our collective ideas and inspirations are what you see translated on your plate. We hope to convey the integrity of the ingredients and bold flavors in every bite.
