Do you love spaghetti and meatballs? Want to eat some while learning about how this dish came to be? Then head to the Homestead for an interactive discussion on food anthropology. As people migrate and adapt, so do their cultures and culinary traditions. Ties with the homeland remain while people and their cultures change in their new environment. This phenomenon of continued connection across nations is known as transnationalism. We will use the Italian-American experience as an example of how culinary transnationalism changed food both in the United States and Italy. Students will be able to taste Italian-American classics, such as spaghetti and meatballs and mac&cheese, which will incorporate the Italian-American products sold in our shop. Come join the culinary journey across borders!
