#TurnTheTables: Food Gentrification and Culinary Appropriation

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Have you ever discovered a new food, restaurant, or cuisine?  Think again.  Some of our attitudes and behaviors can be harmful and render the culture and history other people as disposable.  Food gentrification and culinary appropriation are just two of the 'sins' that we commit when cooking, eating, and talking about foods from other cultures.  Through text and discussion, we will identify these behaviors in ourselves and in our culture and work on dismantling them.
