Author Talk: Amy Trubek on Making Modern Meals

January 18, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Making Modern Meals
Amy Trubek
Thursday, January 18 at 7 p.m.

In her new book, Making Modern Meals, UVM professor Amy Trubek explores the state of American cooking over the past century and across all its varied practices, whether cooking is considered a chore, a craft, or a creative process. Trubek challenges current assumptions about who cooks, who doesn’t, and what this means for culture, cuisine, and health. She locates, identifies, and discusses the myriad ways Americans cook in the modern age, and in doing so, argues that changes in making our meals—from shopping to cooking to dining—have created new cooks, new cooking categories, and new culinary challenges.
