Why you should go. Anthony Bourdain once said that colonization and imperialism are bad for people but somehow really good for the food. The same can be said for revolutions and other traumatic events that in one way or another alter our diets. Food historian Victoria Flexner shares her knowledge to this final talk and tasting series of 2018.
