Dubbed a “historic gastronomist,” Sarah Lohman recreates historic recipes as a way to make a personal connection with the past. She chronicles her explorations in culinary history on her blog, Four Pounds Flour, and her work has been featured in The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. She appears on the Cooking Channel's Food: Fact or Fiction? and is 1/2 of the Masters of Social Gastronomy with co-founder Jonathan Soma.

Currently, she works with museums and galleries around the city to create public programs focused on food, including institutions such as The American Museum of Natural History, The Museum of Science, Boston, and The Lower East Side Tenement Museum. Her first book, Eight Flavors: The Untold Story of American Cuisine, was published with Simon & Schuster in 2016.

Soma was born in the South, is what someone from the North would say. He cooks for fun, codes for hire, and has more hobbies than can dance on the head of a pin. His work has been featured everywhere from Gawker to The New York Times.

Join us for a special evening of talks at the Institute of Culinary Education looking at everyone's favorite pungent ingredient: garlic

Sarah will explore garlic's connection to xenophobia, why it was important that Joe DiMaggio "never reeked of garlic," and when it finally became cool to be a garlic lover.

Meanwhile, have you ever wanted to know what goes on inside those little bulbs? Soma will be detailing the science of garlic, from its oft-touted antimicrobial abilities to how roasting tames those intense flavors.

The night will also feature a special culinary demonstration by Chef James Briscione, Director of Culinary Research at ICE. 

Ticket includes a drink + a snack. 21+ only! This talk takes place at the Institute of Culinary Education, located at 225 Liberty Street in Manhattan. You must enter a first and last name on the next page in order to receive admission to the event.
