Museum of Science: Food, Glorious Food: Our Palate vs. Our Planet?

The Museum of Science will soon host what promises to be a fascinating discussion concerning the balance between the food we love and the environment we desire to protect. On Friday, May 7, at 7pm, come to the Museum of Science for "Food, Glorious Food: Our Palate vs. Our Planet?"

The panel will consist of three well-known food lovers, including: Joanne Chang (pastry chef/owner, Flour Bakery and Café; chef/owner, Myers+Chang), Corby Kummer (senior editor, The Atlantic Monthly; host, The Atlantic Food Channel; author, The Pleasures of Slow Food) and Helene York (director, Bon Appétit Management Company Foundation).

They will explore the relationship between our love affair with food and our desire to protect the planet. Join them for a conversation about how we can radically redesign what we eat to help the Earth without sacrificing the joy, flavor, and glorious experience of eating food. There will be a book signing after the discussion.

There is no cost for this event but seating is limited. Passes are available in the Museum lobby beginning at 5:45 p.m. on the day of the program. First come, first served. Museum members may reserve a limited number of seating passes in advance by calling between 9am-5pm, Monday or Tuesday the week of the program only: 617-589-3169.

Welcome Penny. I wish that I could attend this event too, but I'll be out of town that night.
