We're a big fan, even so much as we must admit that we probably started writing about food in the first place because we loved the publication so much. Finally, we thought when we first read it, a world in print wherein food production and consumption are considered as illuminating a perspective on the way we live and think as visual art, film, literature, and music.
On Friday, Goldstein will celebrate Gastronomica's milestone anniversary with a talk at U.C. Berkeley's Dwinelle Hall. She shall converse with Barry Glassner, professor of sociology at U.S.C. and author of The Gospel of Food, on issues pertaining to food and identity in the United States and abroad, considering food politics as well as the cultural dimensions underlying food in various societies. It'll be a far cry from Oscar Mayer ads and recipes for 10-minute stir-fries.
Panel Discussion: Food, Culture and Identity in a Global Society
Date: Fri., April 2, noon
Where: 3335 Dwinelle Hall, U.C. Berkeley Campus
