Mark Scarbrough, Author, Goat: Meat, Milk, Cheese and Ham: An Obsession with the Hindquarter
America consumes more meat than any country in the world. We have books, TV Shows, shops, shirts and ad campaigns devoted to meat. Butchers are newfound celebrities and the quest for the Holy Grail has been replaced by the search for America’s best hamburger. Why are we so obsessed with bacon and burgers? What cultural and historical legacies have led us to be a meat-crazed nation? Why are butchers so sexy but hamburger flippers are left out of the spotlight? Get the meat and bones of these answers!
FOOD + STUDIES
Krishnendu Ray, Professor and Author, The Migrant's Table, Editor Curried Cultures (moderator)
Paul Freedman, Professor and Author, Food: A History of Taste
Maite Gomez-Rejon, Founder, Art Bites and Author
Lauren Shockey, Author, Four Kitchens
In recent years, we have seen a rise in food studies as both an academic focus and a popular interest but what is food studies exactly? Why is examining food important to scholarship and to our everyday lives? What can looking at food tell us about society, culture, history and politics? FOOD + STUDIES demystifies the discipline and helps us understand its value to us all.
FOOD + COOKS + BOOKS
JJ Goode, Author
In the past decade, there has been an incredible shift in the way we view and understand the chef; once a profession associated with long hours, tired feet and drudgery in the kitchen, the chef is now an artist, a writer, a celebrity. We have seen an unprecedented explosion of cookbook publishing and chefs as writers. Yet, how do chefs manage their professional writing careers with their cooking careers? What is the role of the “collaborator” or “ghost-writer?” This panel illuminates how the reader (and the eater) can better understand the process of how food concept becomes book reality and how chefs manage their newfound author-celebrity.
HAROLD MCGEE AND MAXIME BILET: ON FOOD + SCIENCE + CREATION
Harold McGee, the hand and mind behind the must read, On Food and Cooking: The Science and Lore of the Kitchen, which explains the chemistry, technique and history of food and cooking, and Maxime Bilet, chef, writer and one of the masterminds behind the mammoth Modernist Cuisine talk food, science and creation in the kitchen.
