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).
Yes, I really was on Colbert, sort of
I’ve been asked to explain my brief appearance on the Colbert Report (so brief, that if you blinked, you missed it). On February 1, Colbert did a “Thought for Food” piece about Walmart’s recent food initiatives.
What was I doing there? Colbert used a clip from an ABC News interview from January 20. I was away from NYU that day and taped the interview in a studio at Cornell University.
And once again, here’s my NPR interview with Robert Siegel on All Things Considered about the Walmart announcement.
I’m eager to see how the Walmart promises get put into action.
Enjoy the weekend!
