I am speaking with Scott Barton about global food politics and corporate opportunism. “Attendance is open to all and the spirit, as always at Symposium events, will be as co-operative, lively and inclusive as possible.” Register here. This is at 2:00 p.m. East Coast time.
Weekend reading: Laura Shapiro’s “What She Ate”
Laura Shapiro. What She Ate: Six Remarkable Women and the Food That Tells their Stories. Penguin Random House, 2017
I happily did a blurb for this one:
Laura Shapiro has done it again! She’s given us a fascinating and wonderfully entertaining history of six women of the last two centuries you might never have thought of as foodies, yet here they are distinguished by how differently they dealt with the overwhelming importance of food in their lives. What She Ate argues—and proves–that every woman has a food story. It ought to inspire all of us who love food to get busy on our memoirs.
