Eating Through Time: Food, Health and History

Celebrate the intersection of food, history, and public health at the Eating Through Time Festival. Using food as our common theme, we will bring together chefs, historians, writers and public health experts to discuss the past, present and future of food in society, culture and policy.

This daylong event will include lectures, panels, demonstrations, workshops, book signings, performances, tastings, food trucks, a pop-up bookstore and marketplace, and historic cookbooks on display in the Academy Library.

Featuring:

  • Chef Jacques Pépin on food memories, a theme of his upcoming final PBS show Jacques Pépin Heart and Soul and its companion cookbook
  • Cookbook author Bryant Terry in conversation on food, politics, and the power of culture
  • A Place at the Table documentary screening and Q&A with the producers
  • “Healthy Kitchens, Healthy Lives” with the Culinary Institute of America and Harvard School of Public Health
  • Talks by historians Ken Albala and Betty Fussell

  • And more!
