What Food Teaches About Appetite

@ VOL 5 ON APR 11, 2013

"Appetites, like landscapes, change with the passage of time. When we make decisions about food, we reveal our values, quirks, obsessions, ethnic pride and more."

In What Food Teaches Appetite, from PechaKucha Night MadisonVol. 5Mary Bergin showcases much of the small-town fare in her native rural Wisconsin, and shares the stories of how many of the dishes came to be. Sharing her pride for Wisconsin's German roots, she connects the historical dishes to the people who keep the traditional recipes safe and preserve the neighborhood markets and cherished eateries that make her community special.
