Masters of Social Gastronomy fearlessly takes on food topics, breaking down the history, science, and stories behind hiding behind them. Up this month: sushi!

Sarah will present a history of sushi in the United States, a bizarre story bathed in celebrity. It took a smash-hit TV mini-series to turn sushi into an everyday “American” food, and now American-style sushi is making splash overseas. Learn why we eat out sushi inside out, and the origins of perennial favorites the California and Philadelphia rolls.

Afterward, Soma will explore the science of sushi. Why is it okay to eat raw fish, and how does that stuff sitting in supermarket displays not send us all right to the emergency room? We’ll also take a peek at sushi rice, from crafting the perfect grain to the the carbohydrate secrets that make it so delightfully sticky.

Doors: 6:30pm
Show: 7:00pm

Dubbed a “historic gastronomist,” Sarah Lohman recreates historic recipes as a way to make a personal connection with the past. She chronicles her explorations in culinary history on her blog, Four Pounds Flour, and her work has been featured in The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. She appears on the Cooking Channel’s Food: Fact or Fiction? and is 1/2 of the Masters of Social Gastronomy with co-founder Jonathan Soma.

Currently, she works with museums and galleries around the city to create public programs focused on food, including institutions such as The American Museum of Natural History, The Museum of Science, Boston, and The Lower East Side Tenement Museum. Her first book, Eight Flavors: The Untold Story of American Cuisine, was published with Simon & Schuster in 2016.

Soma was born in the South, is what someone from the North would say. He cooks for fun, codes for hire, and has more hobbies than can dance on the head of a pin. His work has been featured everywhere from Gawker to The New York Times.
