Endangered Eating Book Release Extravaganza at Caveat NYC
Sarah Lohman is a culinary historian and the author of the bestselling and critically acclaimed book Eight Flavors: The Untold Story of American Cuisine. She focuses on the history of American food as a way to access stories of women, immigrants, and people of color, and to address issues of racism, sexism, and xenophobia. Her work has been featured inTheWall Street Journal andThe New York Times, as well as onAll Things Considered; and she has presented across the country, from the Smithsonian Museum of American History in Washington, DC to The Culinary Historians of Southern California. She is also 1/2 of the Masters of Social Gastronomy, a monthly food science and history talk at Caveat NYC, with Brainery co-founder Jonathan Soma.
Soma was born in the South, is what someone from the North would say. He co-founded the Brainery, is the sciencey half of Masters of Social Gastronomy, and plans on getting married to Waffle House. In his more droll moments he is a tragic sellout to higher ed as a professor of data journalism at Columbia University's journalism school.

This event takes places at Caveat NYC, 21A Clinton Street, Manhattan.
Join us for a one-night-only EXTRAVAGANZA celebrating the release of acclaimed culinary historian's new book, Endangered Eating: America’s Vanishing Foods!
Books will be available for purchase at the event, and Sarah will be around after the event to sign. A perfect chance to take care of holiday shopping for that in-law you don’t know too well but you know they like food.
Sarah will lead an overview of the book, focusing on some of America’s most endangered foods, as well as the stories of the farmers, fishers, foragers, and shepherds that preserve them. We’re going to talk about LOST APPLES that have been REDISCOVERED. You’ll hear about North America’s first peanut, believed to have been extinct since 1930, PLUCKED FROM THE VOID and GROWN AGAIN. And we’ll talk about why these foods are going extinct, and how you can help save them.
She’ll pepper the presentation both with readings from the book and some very special guests! Sarah will be joined on stage by her other half (of Masters of Social Gastronomy) Jonathan Soma, amateur food scientist and Director of the Lede Program at the Columbia School of Data Journalism. And more!
We’ll see you there for a night of thoughtful food discussion and CELEBRATION!
No Brainery gift certificates can be used for this event!
