Origins of Taste: Bon Appétit! Food Goes Global

Dates: 
November 06, 2013
Times: 
Wednesday at 5:30 p.m.
Location: 
The Strand Theatre
The November 6 lecture will explore the many food products of the New World that the European discoverers brought back to the Old World. Although certain foods were not immediately used by a large portion of the European population, eventually they became the mainstays of countries like France, Italy, and Ireland, to name a few. How the nutritional content of tomatoes, potatoes, yams, and corn impacted the health of Europeans and how these vegetables were depicted in art will be illustrated in the lecture.
 

This two-part lecture series is a special community event being cosponsored by the Camden Conference and the Farnsworth Art Museum. Community Events are lead-ups to the February 2014 Camden Conference titled “The Global Politics of Food and Water.” Keith Collins MD and Farnsworth Director of Education Roger Dell will each speak in both lectures of the series.


Individual lectures:
$12 for Camden Conference and Farnsworth members, $16 for nonmembers, $6 for college and university students. Free for middle and high school aged students.
