Food Writing Beyond the Plate at the Baltimore Bookfestival

  • Baltimore Bookfest Baltimore Inner Harbor Food For Thought Stage (map)

The best culinary stories use food as a starting point, a way into topics as juicy and diverse as loss, grief, injustice, and the beautiful, terrible and strange nuances of our culture. Tia Keenan, author of The Art of the Cheese Plate and the forthcoming Melt, Stretch & Sizzle; Soleil Ho, host of the Racist Sandwich Podcast and co-writer of the graphic novel MEAL; and Carrie Helms Tippen, author of Inventing Authenticity: How Cookbook Writers Redefine Southern Identity, discuss the challenges, possibilities, and the power of food writing with moderator Hannah Howard, author of Feast: True Love in and out of the Kitchen.

Later Event: November 10
Raclette Party!
