Join QCC Professor Megan Elias for an interesting look at the evolution of the role of women in culinary history. Over time the tasks associated with preparing meals have changed profoundly as food sources and opportunities have changed. The work that women did in kitchens in Queens' agricultural past is very different from that preformed in the borough's private and commercial kitchens today. Dr. Elias will explore the ways that changing foodstuffs have brought changes to the lives of women in Queens over the course of the borough's history.
