Title: A Taste of the Civil War


About the speaker: William Rubel is the author of Bread, a Global History. It offers a wide ranging revision of what - up to now - have been the accepted facts about the history of bread, as well as a fresh view of bread culture today. In this talk, William Rubel will talk about what he has uncovered about the history of bread from 10,000 years before the invention of agriculture through to the twenty-first century bread revolution currently underway. Using a combination of different research methods, including traditional archival searches, online databases, agricultural records, paintings, contemporary descriptions and other sources, as well as extensive milling and baking experiments in his own kitchen, Rubel has delved deep into the history and culture of this staple food. He will share some insights into his methods as well as some of the historic recipes he has discovered.


Co-Sponsored with the Culinary Historians of New York.
