For May's Masters of Social Gastronomy lecture, we're revisiting the topic so awesome Mother Nature snowed it out this past winter: the food of the high seas.
We'll explore the culinary world of drunken sailors, seventeenth-century pirates, and the modern-day cruise ships that rule the waves. What's so tough about hard tack, and how exactly do you come down with a case of scurvy?
We'll be trumpeting the salty secrets of maritime alcohol: the legendary rum rations of the Royal Navy, the invention of the gin and tonic, and the mythic history of IPA's!
