Foodways: Women in Food & the Culture of Gender

Friday, February 17, 11 AM
Facebook Live

The intersection of food with culture and history is understood through the study of “foodways”. Hosted by AGO Executive Chef Renée Bellefeuillle, Foodways is an ongoing conversation series that brings together chefs to explore the intersection of culinary practices, memory and art.
 
Building on themes explored in the AGO exhibition Her Flesh, in this next installment of the Foodways series, Chef Bellefeuille welcomes Chef Nuit Regular for a conversation on the subject of women working in the food industry and the culture of gender. Their talk is paired with a ticketed dinner on Friday, January 27, in AGO Bistro.
