EVERY single loop in our social fabric involves food. We gather, celebrate, reflect and worship with food. From Super Bowl Sunday to Thanksgiving to bread for the Sabbath, it’s all about the food! Every day the meals we eat and how we prepare them tells a story about who we are. Let’s face it – food really is one of the most enduring and persuasive symbolic code systems and we connect it to our safety, our pleasure, our cultural heritages.  Join us as we learn from this amazing anthropologist as we explore just how we define ourselves – and others – through our daily food habits, traditions and practices.
