Trade Route Talks: The Bittersweet History of SugarAugust 10, 2018
Tuesday 12/11 at 7:00pm
The Gourmandise School of Sweets and Savories
Join me for a brand new series of monthly discussions about agriculture, trade and how our taste for foods have changed the landscape of our world. Students are greeted with a topical appetizer and, after the conversation, participate in the hands-on cooking of a dish which uses the theme of the day as the main attraction.
A commodity so common it is difficult to imagine a world without sugar. Trace the history of this sweet grass from classical literature, to slavery and the abolitionist movement, to the modern world stage. ($45)
