According to the organizers:
For better and worse, fast food is the most pervasive culinary trend of our time. At its heart are large multinational chains, running an estimated one million outlets in virtually every corner of the world, serving hundreds of millions of customers every day. Critics have published scathing exposés, supported boycotts, engaged in demonstrations, and lobbied political leaders–usually to little effect. Why has this industry has been so successful? Why have observers been so critical? And what are the options for the future?
A reception with healthful versions of fast-food favorites (but not Big Macs and super-sized fries) will precede the talk.
Ticket price includes entry to MOFAD’s current exhibition Flavor: Making It and Faking It. The exhibition will open for viewing at 6:00.
