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).
And now, healthy Kool-Aid
Thanks to Michele Simon for sending this link to an AOL deadpan description of how companies are making healthier junk food. Those of us who think “healthier junk food” is an oxymoron wonder how the addition of vitamin E to Kool-Aid is going to do much good for anyone but Kraft must think it will entice you to buy it. Water, anyone?
