Join Slow Food DC for a food and wine potluck to celebrate the launch of our SLOW FOOD UNIVERSITY LECTURE SERIES.
Our inaugural speaker Dr. Warren Belasco, is a professor of American studies at the University of Maryland Baltimore County.His lecture titled The Future of Food is based on his book Meals to Come: A History of the Future of Food, which The Economist has called "An ingenious analysis of the way in which optimists and pessimists alike use food to illustrate their vision of the future," and which The New York Times says, "negotiates a dizzying web of issues with subtlety and balance, not to mention polish and verve." Dr. Belasco will sign copies of his books on food issues afterwards.
