Plants, Cuisine and Culture: Native American Cuisine with Sean Sherman

Plants, Cuisine and Culture

Virtual Lecture Series

Plants are intimately linked to our cultural identities and food traditions. Plants tell us where we are, and who we are in how we use them to feed ourselves. When we migrate, we carry our culture and cuisine with us. In this series, renowned chefs, culinary historians, and authors from cultures around the world discuss how plants shaped their foodways.

This virtual lecture series is offered in Partnership with: Chicago Botanic Garden, Franklin Park Conservatory, Lewis Ginter Botanic Garden and Missouri Botanic Garden
