I’m speaking with Fabio Parasecoli about his new book, Gastronativism: Food, Identity, Politics, at the Museum of the City of New York at a session chaired by Krishnendu Ray at 6:30 pm. Information is here and the ticketing link is here. This is a preview of the museum’s forthcoming exhibit, Food in New York: Bigger Than the Plate (opening September 16) and is co-presented by MOFAD (Museum of Food and Drink).

After an outcry from consumers…
- Pennsylvania backs down from its decision to ban labels on milk cartons that say the cows were not treated with recombinant bovine growth hormone.
- A European ethics panel says cloned animals should not be allowed on the market.
- McDonald’s backs down from its “food prize” program (Happy Meals for good grades) in Florida.
All that in just one day. Signs of a social movement anyone?
