Event Details

Cindy R. Lobel is Assistant Professor of History at Lehman College. Her first book, Urban Appetites: Food and Culture in Nineteenth-Century New York, surveys the origins of New York City’s food industry, and the rise of New York as both a metropolis and food capital in the 19th century. As the food and population became increasingly cosmopolitan, however, corruption, contamination, and undeniably inequitable conditions escalated.

Urban Appetites serves up a complete picture of the evolution of the city, its politics and foodways. The manuscript version won the 2013 Dixon Ryan Fox Prize, awarded annually by New York State History Association for the best manuscript about New York history.
