MSG Presents: The Food of the High Seas

Posted by A69143a5 tiny Jen Messier on apr 30, 2014 under Blog Post

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! 

Very Important Details: 
Tuesday, May 20
Free, 21+
Doors at 7:30pm, talks start at 8pm
Littlefield, 622 Degraw Street in Gowanus

Totally optional RSVP
