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).
Sponsored research study of the week: Apples
Every now and then a study comes out that I just love.
At last, scientific proof of what we’ve always been taught.
Well, two apples, but OK.
Also OK, who paid for this?
Supported in part by AGER (Agribusiness and research) grant no. 2010-2119 funding the project “Apple fruit quality in the post-genomic era, from breeding new genotypes to post-harvest: nutrition and health.”
AGER is an Italian foundation devoted to promoting Italian agribusiness, supported, it says, by banking foundations.
I’ll take that at face value and enjoy the research.
