From the organizers:
Cookbook author Julia Turshen and food scholar Dr. Jessica Harris join forces at MOFAD to discuss the ways in which we can become more politically engaged and active through the power of food and the dinner table. The audience will be invited to participate in the conversation, sharing your own experiences, suggestions, and thoughts on food and activism in the local and national landscape. During this workshop, small bites based on recipes from Feed the Resistance will be provided by Komeeda.
Julia’s new book, Feed the Resistance: Recipes + Ideas for Getting Involved, is more than just a cookbook. Featuring essays from activists, resources for political engagement, and showing how food can build community, it is a book that is both nourishing and motivating. Together, Julia and Jessica will explore the ways in which food can bring us together and create positive change in our communities.
Following the discussion, Julia and Jessica will sign books and beer and wine will be served.
