Can you imagine Kansas without wheat, Italy without tomatoes, or India without chili peppers? These foods, so central to modern regional culinary identities, were adopted as a result of the Columbian Exchange—the transfer of plants, animals, populations, and diseases between the Old and New Worlds following Christopher Columbus’s first voyage to the Americas. Through observation of Newberry items and the examination of recipes, we will learn in this one-day seminar how modern tastes have been influenced by the Columbian Exchange.
One session. E – $85, R – $93.50
