Podcast co-hosts Cynthia Graber and Nicola Twilley serve up a three-course feast for your eyes and ears with special guests, live experiments and interactive tastings.
Are oysters really are an aphrodisiac? Can you hack your tastebuds? And is there any logic to the way pasta shapes are paired with sauce? In this special live performance of the podcast Gastropod, co-hosts Cynthia Graber and Nicola Twilley will serve up a three-course feast for your eyes and ears. From live experiments to interactive tastings, the evening will combine special guests and field recordings to reveal the history and science behind the food we eat every day. Special guests include Catherine Dulac, biology professor at Harvard University, and Michael Pagliarini, chef and owner of the acclaimed restaurant Giulia. Reception with cash bar and light bites to follow.
Gastropod is the award-winning podcast that looks at food through the lens of science and history. Every other week, Cynthia and Nicola release a new episode that explores the hidden history and surprising science behind a particular food- or farming-related topic, from aquaculture to ancient feasts, from cutlery to chile peppers, and from music to Malbec. Join us and savor this very special live podcast event!
