Masters of Social Gastronomy: The Secret History of Sushi
August 27 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
The Masters of Social Gastronomy, aka Sarah Lohman of Four Pounds Flour and Jonathan Soma of the Brooklyn Brainery, are back with the next installment in their series exploring the science and history of foods. Up this month: The Secret History of Sushi.
Sarah will present a history of sushi in the United States, a bizarre story bathed in celebrity. It took a smash-hit TV mini-series to turn sushi into an everyday “American” food, and now American-style sushi is making splash overseas. Learn why we eat out sushi inside out, and the origins of perennial favorites the California and Philadelphia rolls.
Afterward, Soma will explore the science of sushi. Why is it okay to eat raw fish, and how does that stuff sitting in supermarket displays not send us all right to the emergency room? We’ll also take a peek at sushi rice, from crafting the perfect grain to the the carbohydrate secrets that make it so delightfully sticky.
Doors will open at 6:30pm, with talks beginning at 7:00pm. Admission is $10 when purchased in advance; $12 at the door. Please note this is a mixed seated and standing venue. Best to arrive early for good seats.
