Corn Symposium, presented by Topic48, is a two-day event in New York City dedicated to all things corn. In bringing together a wide range of presenters, the symposium will explore all aspects of corn though lectures, demonstrations, tastings, and cooking classes. Though the primary focus will be on corn as food, art, culture, and politics will also be discussed, following a through line from corn’s ancient history and propagation to its current role in the modern food system.
The first day, Sunday September 8th, will take place at The New School’s Tishman Auditorium, where participants will hear lectures, view presentations, engage in discussions, and have a chance to meet the symposiasts and fellow attendees.
The second day, Monday September 9th, will consist of small, tastings, demos as well as hands-on classes in various kitchens around the city, during which participants will learn about techniques of working with corn and experience its many different flavors.
Corn Symposium is for both food professionals and for the general public who are interested in delving into a single subject for two days and learning more about corn.
Tickets for Sunday are $100 and includes lunch. Tickets for Monday’s classes and tastings are ticketed separately. For agenda and pricing, click: www.topic48.com
