This spring Scripps Presents wants to nourish your body and mind. Welcome to “The Food Issue”! This season we’re going to be delving into issues like food justice, sustainability, culture, and creativity.
Hear from this year’s MLK Commemorative Lecturer Bryant Terry about redefining contemporary soul food and how he’s amplifying new voices of color in the culinary world.
Learn more about the role food played in sustaining the Black Panther movement with activist Cleo Silvers and writer Suzanne Cope and her book, Power Hungry.
Get unique insight into what it’s like to spend time with iconic chef, Chez Panisse founder Alice Waters, from an excellent source: her daughter, Fanny Singer, as she discusses her memoir/cookbook, Always Home, with longtime family friend and iconic food writer, Ruth Reichl!
Finally, spend some time—in-person—with foodie superstar Yotam Ottolenghi, who will be coming to the Scripps campus on May 7!
And this is just the first course! Stay tuned for additional program announcements!
We are so looking forward to hosting you!
