"Tell me what you eat," wrote a French gourmand 200 years ago, "and I will tell you who you are." This class examines history through the lens of food. The way we eat/ate is always changing. We will discuss how invaders, wars, immigrants, ethnic groups, technology, the media and politics change our food habits. Students will maintain food journals and write a mini-term paper.
