Culinary Historians of NY Season Opener
Once again, we will launch our season of culinary history programs with an evening of presentations on recent work by CHNY members, including a presentation by the recipient of the 2009 CHNY Scholar's Grant. We'll start promptly at 6:30 with the annual business meeting and election of officers, and the talks will begin at about 7:00. Refreshments will be served.

Featured will be Ellen Schnepel, CHNY Scholar's Grant recipient, talking about her research on "The Cooking of History: Early Travelogues as Gastronomic Adventure," focusing on chocolate. Also speaking will be Rynn Berry, on his new book "Becoming Raw: An Essential Guide to Vegan Raw Food Diets"; Joelle Mahony, on sugar confectionary techniques used during the reigns of Louis XIV, XV and XVI; Renée Marton, on "Rice in Colonial American: The Birth of an Industry"; Laura Weiss, on her new book "Ice Cream: A Global History," and Susan Yager, on her recent book "The Hundred Year Diet: America's Voracious Appetite for Losing Weight."
