Americans know and love Italian food, but few of us understand the nuances of history and culture that the ingredients represent. In this all-day seminar, we focus on signature staples of Italian cuisine: wheat products, cheese, olive oil, and cured meats. Each Italian region's foods reflect distinct geography, cultural influences, and traditions. Using historical examples, food historians reveal the connection of farming practices and cooking traditions to Italian regional identity and cultural history. (karenharris)
