TV Dinners: A History of Television Cooking Shows - Culinary Historians of NY w/Kathleen Collins
What do more than fifty years of television cooking shows reveal about how we eat -- and how we live?

This was the question Kathleen Collins kept in mind as she researched and wrote her new book, "Watching What We Eat: The Evolution of Television Cooking Shows." Since the 1940s, when television sets were becoming a standard feature in American homes, cooking shows have appeared on the air, their quality ranging from erudite and instructional to purely entertaining. The speaker will lead us through that history, from Dione Lucas to the Iron Chef, and will show us how these programs have "both reflected and shaped significant changes in American culture."

Kathleen Collins is an author and researcher who has studied and written about television, media, history, popular culture, and food. She has a Master's degree in journalism from NYU, with a specialization in cultural reporting and criticism, as well as a Master's in library science.
