The Raw Truth About Cooking

March 6, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


RSVP Today!

Free with RSVP, for adults 21+

All human cultures use cooking and other means to process food. Why is food processing so universal? And why might it threaten our health today? Rachel Carmody explains how processing increases the calories we extract from food, ways this practice has given humans an evolutionary edge, and why it may present challenges for our present and future.

This event is produced in partnership with the American Museum of Natural History.
