It has been said that one of the most enduring markers of ethnic identity is cuisine. From fast food to slow food and everything in between, we will consider how eating, cooking and even shopping for food are rich social activities. This conversation examines the ways in which food and the act of eating are important ways of defining who we are. The presentation is sponsored by the New York Council for the Humanities. This event is FREE but advanced registration is required.
