New York City boasts the world's most diverse, fascinating, and ground-breaking food scene. Whether dining in iconic or trend-setting restaurants, noshing on vibrant street food prepared by new immigrants, or filling one's basket at markets catering to ethnic heritage or gourmet aspirations, New York City's opportunities for cosmopolitan eating are unparalleled. New York also has pioneered solutions to complex issues, from launching farmers' markets and tilling urban gardens be they in vacant lots or on pristine rooftopsto politically-charged battles over licensing laws, school food and soda sizes.
Savoring Gotham: A Food Lover's Companion to New York City (Andrew F. Smith, Editor-in-Chief) organizes this dynamic kaleidoscope into an engrossing encyclopedia of New York City's food culture, with 570 entries ranging from "A&P" to "zeppole." Many NYU faculty and graduate students lent their expertise: among them Jenny Berg, Hasia Diner, Marion Nestle, Krish Ray, Meryl Rosofsky, and Daniel Simon, each of whom will discuss their contributions, including the challenges faced when creating a work designed to appeal to both the general public and food studies scholars. Cathy Kaufman, Senior Editor of Savoring Gotham, will introduce the evening.
A reception featuring iconic and ethnic New York foods will precede the talk, and copies of Savoring Gotham will be available for purchase.
