Lisbon and Spices: Transforming the World's Culinary Horizons
Michael Krondl will explore the European taste for spices during the Renaissance and how it influenced and was in turn affected by the trade routes created by the Portuguese in the 16th century. He will also discuss how the "age of exploration" changed the world's appetite for spices, especially for capsicums in Africa, India, and the Iberian peninsula.
Michael Krondl is, most recently, the author of "The Taste of Conquest: The Rise and Fall of the Three Great Cities of Spice." He has written extensively about food history for the "Oxford Encyclopedia of Food and Drink in America," "The Business of Food: Encyclopedia of the Food and Drink Industries," and other publications. He is also the author of "Around the American Table: Treasured Recipes and Food Traditions from the American Cookery Collections of the New York Public Library."
