Smithsonian Food History Book Virtual Talk

April 2 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Paula J. Johnson, The Foods, People, and Innovations That Feed Us, Tuesday, April 2nd


Virtually step into the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of American History with

Curator Paula Johnson as she discusses the book Smithsonian American Table: The Foods,

People, and Innovations That Feed Us.


American Table is a sweeping history of food and culture that summons everyone to the table

for a fresh look at some of the people, ingredients, events, and movements that have shaped

how and what we eat. Johnson, curator and project director of the American Food History Project,

will discuss several stories featured in the volume, with an emphasis on those that intersect most

directly with the Smithsonian’s research, collecting, and programming around food history.


After this enlightening, enriching, and entertaining webinar, you can cook your way through the

recipes that are featured in the volume that reflect American history and culture. Hungry for
