FRESH TALK: Plated Politics
Sunday, September 26, 4:30–6 p.m.
Despite recent decades of feminist activism and increasing gender equity, women are still disproportionately responsible for domestic tasks, including managing family meals and nutrition. Yet the culinary industry—professionalized cooking—is predominantly male. In this FRESH TALK, speakers explore what happens when women’s work doesn’t necessarily uplift women and how women within and outside of the culinary industry can forge a new path forward. Speakers include culinary historian, professor and author Jessica B. Harris; food critic, chef, podcast host and author Soleil Ho; chef, author and founder of Black Culinary History Thérèse Nelson; and culinary historian Laura Shapiro.
Join us for a day of meaningful connection and in-depth workshops that offer practical tips and resource sharing for creative entrepreneurs at all levels. Participants interested in the creative economy can attend workshops on branding, business development and more.
