It’s still freezing outside, but soon we’ll all shed our winter coats, head outside to catch those first, tepid springtime rays and…engage in a little symbolic cannibalism. Not even kidding. That’s the topic at the Culinary Historians of New York’s next talk, “Good to Think and Good to Eat: Symbolic Cannibalism and Edible Springtime Rites.” Gary Allen, professor of food writing at SUNY’s Empire State College and author, editor and illustrator of many books (including his latest, How to Serve Man: On Cannibalism, Sex, Sacrifice & the Nature of Eating), will lead the March 20th talk, which will feature refreshments that evoke the human body, like lady fingers and Minni de Virgini (aka St Agatha’s Breasts). Intrigued? We are! Get your tickets here (or become a CHNY member first to receive discounted tickets).
