Ecotrust's Food & Farms program welcomes Ann Vileisis, author of Kitchen Literacy: How We Lost Knowledge of Where Food Comes from and Why We Need to Get It Back, for an evening presentation and slide show discussing her new book.
Vileisis will take viewers on a sensory-rich journey through the history of preparing dinner, with special attention to what urban and suburban cooks have known, and not known, about their foods as the distance between farm and kitchen grew.
The talk will conclude with a discussion of modern shoppers' renewed interest in knowing more about how and where their foods are produced. The revealing presentation features fascinating historic images and promises to make people think differently about what they know about what they eat.
Why should we be interested in knowing the story of our foods? And how do we regain that knowledge? Find out on November 5th.
