Fordham Conversations: You Are What You Eat

How can food shape our identity?

This week’s show is all about food and how it’s more than just a source of energy. Food can shape our bodies, identity, and culture. Jonathon Appels teaches a class at Fordham called ‘You Are What You Eat: The Anthropology of Food.’ He talks about the lack of discourse around food culture, and his own experience with food. Also, Emma Boast (program director at the Museum of Food and Drink) talks about a project aimed at opening a food museum in New York City.
