Title: “How the Lowly Spud Changed the World”

 

 

Speaker: Andrew F. Smith

 

Description: This is a surprising tale of how the lowly potato rose from obscurity to global stardom. It is filled with bold domesticators, intrepid explorers, savvy farmers, hungry consumers, wise cooks, fast food entrepreneurs, and experimental scientists. The story also has its dark side from famines to frankenfoods. The presentation will cover why the potato has become the most commonly eaten vegetable in the world and why we love the potato dishes and products.

 

Speakers bio: Andrew F. Smith has taught food history at the New School University in Manhattan since 1995. He is the author or editor of eighteen books, including the Potato: A Global History and  Starving the South; How the North Won the Civil War. He is also the editor of the Edible Series published by Reaktion Books. He has been regularly interviewed on radio and television, including National Public Radio, Discovery, the History Channel, and the Food Network.
