Carnegie at the Co-op – Flavor, Memory, Identity: Food Writing

September 19, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - October 3, 2018 @ 8:00 pm
Food does much more than feed the body. It triggers memory, fuels imagination and connects cultures. We will use all of our senses to write and tell stories about our relationships with food. From the best bites we’ve ever taken to childhood memories at our grandmother’s table to cooking as a means of surviving and thriving, we will dig deep and explore everything that food means to us. This is an all levels, three-part workshop taking place on consecutive Wednesday evenings (Sept. 19, Sept. 26, Oct. 3) from 6-8 pm, and is a partnership between the Co-op and the Carnegie Center for Literacy and Learning. Tickets are $39 for Co-op Owners and $45 for General Admission. They can be purchased at the Co-op's Hospitality Desk or online at Eventbrite. ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR: Dan Wu is the owner and head dishwasher at Atomic Ramen. He juggles his nascent restaurant with community service, writing, podcasting and cosplaying.

A group of leading international scientists, doctors and professors have spent their lives trying to find out what is the best way to eat. A pattern has begun to emerge in their research, which shows that our animal-based diets are the cause of our most challenging health and environmental problems. Having to battle against their own beliefs, and those of the institutions they worked for, they have come up with a solution that will change peoples lives forever. They share their ideas on how we can not only prevent prevalent diseases like cancer and heart disease but also cure them. And also how applying the same principles can dramatically reduce our greenhouse gas emissions, at the same time as providing more food for the planet. In accordance with this scientific evidence, pioneering farmers and chefs around the world are discovering new ways to produce and prepare the food we should be eating.

A father’s search to find the healthiest building materials leads him to the completion of the nation’s first hemp house. Hemp with lime is a non-toxic, energy efficient, mildew, fire and pest resistant building material. The drawback — although research is legal in some states, hemp remains off-limits to almost all U.S. farmers. Industrial hemp is a non-psychoactive plant, grown in 31 other countries that makes 1,000’s of sustainable products and offers solutions for global warming, nutrition, poverty and deforestation. Here in the U.S., hemp could be a money-making crop for farmers and create jobs. But why can’t we grow it here? BRINGING IT HOME tells the story of hemp: past, present and future and a global industry that includes textiles, building materials, food products, bio-plastics, auto parts and more.
