John McQuaid - Tasty: The Art and Science of What We Eat

Special Meet and Greet Event!

Co-Sponsored by CUESA (Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture)

With reporting from kitchens, supermarkets, farms, restaurants, huge food corporations, and science labs, Tasty: The Art and Science of What We Eat tells the story of the still-emerging concept of flavor and how our sense of taste will evolve in the coming decades. Tasty explains the scientific research taking place on multiple fronts: how genes shape our tastes; how hidden taste perceptions weave their way into every organ and system in the body; how the mind assembles flavors from the five senses and signals from body’s metabolic systems; the quest to understand why sweetness tastes good and its dangerous addictive properties; why something disgusts one person and delights another; and what today’s obsessions with extreme tastes tell us about the brain.

John McQuaid’s journalism has appeared in Smithsonian magazine, CUESAthe Washington Post, Wired, Forbes.com, and EatingWell magazine. His science and environment reporting for The Times-Picayune anticipated Hurricane Katrina, explored the global fisheries crisis and the problems of invasive species. His work has won a Pulitzer Prize, as well as awards from the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Institute for Biological Sciences, and the International Association of Culinary Professionals. McQuaid is a graduate of Yale.

Agatha Kulaga & Erin Patinkin - Ovenly: Sweet & Salty Recipes from New York's Most Creative Bakery

Ovenly is an award-winning bakery headquartered in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Since 2010, their innovative baked goods have found their way into cafés, restaurants and stores nationwide. In their first cookbook, Ovenly: Sweet and Salty Recipes from New York’s Most Creative Bakery, Agatha Kulaga and Erin Patinkin bring their knack for sweet and savory splendor to your home kitchen. Packed with the baking know-how of two straight-talking, home taught bakers and sprinkled throughout with irresistible full-color photographs, these inventive recipes are not to be missed.

Agatha Kulaga grew up in Connecticut, where some of her happiest childhood memories are of baking alongside her mother and grandmother, making old-world sweets like apple cake, poppy-seed rolled cake and fat dessert dumplings. In one lucky year, Kulaga quit her job of nearly ten years, started a business and married the man of her dreams. She has never been happier.

Erin Patinkin spent her early years in Chicago, where she developed an obsession for Vienna Beef hot dogs (ketchup is sacrilege), Big League Chew and Yan Can Cook television episodes. The day she traded business casual for an apron and clogs was the best day of her life.

Bill T. Jones - Story/Time: The Life of an Idea

Spinster Sisters, Santa Rosa • Ticket: Single $95; Couple $165 (one book)

      

 

 

In this ceaselessly questioning book, acclaimed African American dancer, choreographer, and director Bill T. Jones reflects on his art and life as he describes the genesis of Story/Time, a recent dance work produced by his company and inspired by the modernist composer and performer John Cage. Presenting personally revealing stories, richly illustrated with striking color photographs of the work’s original stage production, and featuring a beautiful, large-format design, the book is a work of art in itself.

Like the dance work, Story/Time the book is filled with telling vignettes—about Jones’s childhood as part of a large, poor, Southern family that migrated to upstate New York; about his struggles to find a place for himself in a white-dominated dance world; and about his encounters with notable artists and musicians. In particular, Jones examines his ambivalent attraction to avant-garde modernism, which he finds liberating but also limiting in its disregard for audience response. As he strives to make his work more personal and broadly engaging, especially to an elusive African American audience, Jones—who is still drawn to the avant-garde—wrestles with questions of how an artist can remain true to himself while still caring about the popular reception of his work.

Bill T. Jones is an acclaimed dancer, choreographer, and director. He is the artistic director, cofounder, and choreographer of the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company and executive artistic director of New York Live Arts. He is the recipient of many awards and honors, including Tony Awards for FELA! and Spring Awakening, a Kennedy Center Honor, and a MacArthur Fellowship. In 2014, President Barack Obama awarded Jones the National Medal of Arts, the country’s highest honor for achievement in the arts.

The ticket includes the meal, wine, tax, tip, and a signed copy of the book.

Literary Luncheon: Dave Berry - Live Right and Find Happiness (Although Beer is Much Faster)

Ticket: $55 (includes meal & signed book) 

 

 

In Live Right and Find Happiness (Although Beer is Much Faster) you'll find brilliant, brand-new, never-before-published pieces, Dave Barry passes on home truths to his new grandson and to his daughter Sophie, who will be getting her learner’s permit in 2015 (“So you’re about to start driving! How exciting! I’m going to kill myself”). He explores the hometown of his youth, where the grown-ups were supposed to be uptight fifties conformists, but seemed to have a lot of un–Mad Men–like fun—unlike Dave’s own Baby Boomer generation, which was supposed to be wild and crazy, but somehow turned into neurotic hover-parents. He dives into everything from the inanity of cable news and the benefits of Google Glass (“You will look like a douchebag”) to the loneliness of high school nerds (“You will never hear a high school girl say about a boy, in a dreamy voice, ‘He’s so sarcastic!’”), from the perils of home repair to firsthand accounts of the soccer craziness of Brazil and the just plain crazy craziness of Vladimir Putin’s Russia (“He stares at the camera with the expression of a man who relaxes by strangling small furry animals”), and a lot more besides. By the end, if you do not feel wiser, richer in knowledge, more attuned to the universe... we wouldn’t be at all surprised. But you’ll have had a lot to laugh about!

Dave Barry’s recent bestselling books include You Can Date Boys When You’re Forty, I’ll Mature When I’m Dead, and Insane City.
