We’re not all historians here, but we’re all interested in food history.

To see what we’re up to, check out our schedule below and some of our previous lectures, and maybe drop by the Los Angeles Central Library for one of our free monthly lectures.

If you decide to join, your dues go to buy historical cookbooks and manuscripts for the Central Library’s collection, one of the most important in the country.

No environment on Earth is as alien as space, or as challenging when it comes to providing nutritious, appetizing food.
