Adam Gopnik - The Table Comes First

Friday, November 18, 2011 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm
Eat to live or live to eat? Or, as the eloquent New Yorker essayist shows in this consideration of current attitudes about food, notice how central the dinner table is to ethnic and religious traditions, family life, and romance. Gopnik approaches his subject by way of 18th-century France, when restaurants as we know them developed. He goes on to sample related topics such as eating local, wine, and dessert.
