Each month, Masters of Social Gastronomy takes on a curious food topic and breaks down the history and science behind it. This month, we’re eating a balanced BREAKFAST.
At the dawn of the twentieth century, breakfast underwent a total transformation from a dense, multi-meat affair to a bowl of whole-grain cereal. Sarah will reveal the key players in this breakfast upset and we'll decide if this change was for the better--or worse.
Then, we’ll take a sharp turn into Pancake City! Abandoning his true love Waffle House, Soma will then take us on a trip to hear the nitty-gritty on the best pancakes this planet has to offer: spongy Ethiopian injera, India’s paper-thin dosa, the mile-high Japanese okonomiyaki, and more!
Doors 6:30 PM, show 7:00 PM.
Tickets $10 in advance, $12 at the door.
This event is mixed seated and standing room. Seats are first-come, first-served.
REFUND POLICY: Tickets may be refunded up to 24 hours before the event. Within 24 hours we may take exchanges for other events at our discretion. No refunds after the event.
Please note this is a mixed seated and standing venue. Please arrive early for the best seats.
Dubbed a “historic gastronomist,” Sarah Lohman recreates historic recipes as a way to make a personal connection with the past. She chronicles her explorations in culinary history on her blog, Four Pounds Flour, and her work has been featured in The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. She appears on the Cooking Channel’s Food: Fact or Fiction? and is 1/2 of the Masters of Social Gastronomy with co-founder Jonathan Soma.
Currently, she works with museums and galleries around the city to create public programs focused on food, including institutions such as The American Museum of Natural History, The Museum of Science, Boston, and The Lower East Side Tenement Museum. Her first book, Eight Flavors: The Untold Story of American Cuisine, was published with Simon & Schuster in 2016.
Soma was born in the South, is what someone from the North would say. He cooks for fun, codes for hire, and has more hobbies than can dance on the head of a pin. His work has been featured everywhere from Gawker to The New York Times.
