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.

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.
