Event description

Description

Cincinnati loves goetta. Since its arrival with nineteenth-century Germanic immigrants, this humble dish has evolved from peasant staple to ubiquitous delicacy. Once upon a time, Cincinnatians found goetta mostly in neighborhood butcher shops, in Over-the-Rhine's so-called Goetta Alley and through Sander Packing, its first commercial producer. Now hungry locals scarf it down at diners and white-linen establishments alike and in everything from egg rolls to Reuben sandwiches. Tracing goetta from its Germanic origins and its first stop in Greater Cincinnati to its largest commercial producers, Queen City Sausage and Gliers, food etymologist and "Goettevangelist" Dann Woellert explores goetta's history in the city that made it regionally famous.

Schedule for the event:

6:00 PM - 7:00 PM Cocktails, Dinner and Networking

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM History of Goetta with Dann Woellert

8:00 PM - 8:30 PM OVIFT Updates and Wrap up

Dann Woellert, as a Food Etymologist has been chasing the trail of weird regional foods for the past several years. With a day gig as a product marketeer he’s found the opportunity to connect with chefs and owners of national food chains and local onesies. He’s written about historic restaurants, beloved brands like Rubel’s Rye and Frank’s Red Hot, Cincinnati Chili, and now our weirdest regional food, goetta. In the blog he curates, Dann Woellert the Food Etymologist, he connects our food to national history and discovers lost immigrant foods. He is a five time recipient of the Ohioana Award for Literary and Artistic Achievement. The way to his heart is through Green Tea Kit Kats or a good Cinghiale con Cioccolato.
