From the author of the acclaimed 97 Orchard, Jane Ziegelman and her husband, culinary historian Andrew Coe, share their in-depth exploration of the greatest food crisis the nation has ever faced—the Great Depression—and how it transformed America’s culinary culture. Before 1929, America’s relationship with food was defined by abundance, but the collapse of the economy, in both urban and rural America, left a quarter of all Americans out of work and undernourished. New York was the first state to offer relief and in turn was influential in shaping national food policy. Join Ziegelman and Coe in conversation about this formative time in our food culture and taste dishes from the era, such as lima bean loaf.Buy tickets/get more info now
