The NSCDA’s National Historic Activities Committee is delighted to sponsor a four-part lecture series, “Food for Thought: A Cookbook Story,” that explores how food permeates, informs, and defines a culture ... ours!  

Using cookbooks as historical reflections of the past, we’ll unpack a variety of topics using a variety of methods, from performance to lectures. Each will fill about an hour and will be offered on a unique and secure Zoom link.  

This NSCDA-sponsored opportunity is free to ALL of our NSCDA members. This lecture is also available to the general public for a modest suggested donation of $5 per participant.
