California Cooking

California Citrus Park

Dates and dim-sum, salsa and San Francisco sourdough. This past semester I taught a course at the University of Munich called "California Cooking: How the Golden State Changed the Way America Eats.” After four months of talking about foodways in California, and their many histories, I am delighted to have the opportunity to spend the next two months eating (and, of course, cooking, or at least assembling/dicing avocado and segmenting citrus) in the Golden State. Until the end of April 2019, I will be based at UC Berkeley as a visiting scholar in the Department of Ethnic Studies.
