CULINARY HISTORIANS OF NEW YORK PRESENT|
"Defining Nordic Cuisine: Yesterday and Today"
Wednesday, March 2, 2016
Nordic countries have long been associated with concepts like purity of nature and simplicity of design. And the Nordic relationship with food seems harmonious with the environment. Traditional preparations such as salting, curing, pickling and smoking have not gone out of fashion and are, in fact, experiencing a renaissance. Darra Goldstein delves into the past to show how current tastes in Scandinavia have evolved, giving a rich sense of each country's culture. She will discuss the history, lore, and rich culinary traditions of the region.
Darra Goldstein is the Willcox B. and Harriet M. Adsit Professor of Russian at Williams College and founding editor of Gastronomica: The Journal of Food and Culture. She served as editor in chief of the Oxford Companion to Sugar and Sweets, and is the food editor of Russian Life magazine and series editor of California Studies in Food and Culture. Her newest book, Fire + Ice, Classic Nordic Cooking, was published in October 2015.
