How We Eat Trumps What We Eat

Never before have we cared so much about food. It preoccupies our popular culture, our fantasies, even our moralizing—“You still eat meat?” How could the land of Chef Boyardee have come to this, and where can we go from here? Award-winning New Yorker writer Adam Gopnik, author of Paris to the Moon and the new The Table Comes First, traces our rapid evolution from commendable awareness to manic compulsion and how, on the way, we lost sight of a timeless truth: What goes on around the table is always more important than what we put on the table. Presented by Town Hall, with Elliott Bay Book Company.
