The Raw Milk Wars, with Anne Mendelson / Culinary Historians of New York
Milk pasteurization is one of the great life-saving public health initiatives of all time -- or is it? Most of us were so taught in school. What we weren't taught is that many people have begged to differ for the past hundred-plus years. From the dawn of the American milk pasteurization movement in the 1890s, a vocal party of opponents attacked the measure as an interference with a healthful substance's natural properties and a means of camouflaging dirty milk. Though this viewpoint had become marginalized by the mid-twentieth century, it never completely died out. Today a grass-roots raw milk movement is rekindling the debate with both old and new arguments.

Join us as Anne Mendelson, author of the newly published "Milk: The Surprising Story of Milk Through the Ages," takes on the milk wars. A longtime CHNY member, Anne is the author of the acclaimed "Stand Facing the Stove" and a frequent contributor to "Gourmet," "Saveur," and "The New York Times." She also received the Sophie Coe Prize for Food History awarded by the Oxford Symposium on Food and Cooking for her study of the diet of the Lenape Indians.

The National Arts Club will be festively decorated for the holidays, and well serve milky holiday treats.
