RANDOM ENCOUNTERS IN THE HISTORY AND SCIENCE OF FOOD

The Lab at Belmar presents a series that investigates the foods we eat through a combination of history, science, anthropology and culinary arts. Each event combines one food topic, two lectures and a three-course meal.

Returning for a second season this March, 2009. Click here to find out more.
