What was it like to have a front-row seat at the biggest revolution in American food in a half century? In fact, what was it like to help create it? Barbara Fairchild knows. In her more than 30-year career at Bon Appétit magazine—including over 10 years as Editor-in-Chief—Barbara and her team were at the forefront of finding, influencing, and reporting on the personalities, restaurants, and recipes that helped shape generations in professional and home kitchens.

Join Barbara, in conversation with James Beard Award-nominated culinary author and cooking teacher Nancy Zaslavsky. A reception with themed refreshments will follow the talk at approximately 11:30 AM.

This event is free and open to the public.
