What's the story behind some of our favorite dishes? How does everything from microbes to metals affect the taste of the food we eat? In this special performance of the podcast Gastropod, co-hosts Cynthia Graber and Nicola Twilley serve up a three-course feast for your eyes and ears. From live experiments to interactive tastings, the evening combines special guests and field recordings to reveal the secret history and science behind the food we eat every day. Join us and savor this very special live podcast event!

Gastropod is the award-winning podcast that looks at food through the lens of science and history. Every other week, Cynthia and Nicola release a new episode that explores the hidden history and surprising science behind a particular food- or farming-related topic, from aquaculture to ancient feasts, from cutlery to chili peppers, and from music to Malbec.

After the program, visit the Chocolate exhibit and indulge in a special reception.

This event is sold out.
