About This Event

As a source of both physical and emotional sustenance, food is intricately tied to our survival as individuals and as a community. During the twentieth century, food also played an important role as a means by which Cantabrigians could learn about and connect with their neighbors across racial, ethnic and class lines. Graduate students from the Boston University Gastronomy Program will lead us in a tour of Central Square, highlighting locations and moments in Cambridge history in which the sharing of a diverse array of ethnic cuisines helped to raise awareness and understanding of the area\'s rich cultural mosaic. This tour was created in conjunction with our upcoming Fall Conversation, How Has Food Mended Cambridge?, which will take place on Monday, November 15, at 7:00 p.m. via Zoom.
