What Did Historical Feminist Icons Eat for Dinner?
July 30, 2018
Edible History, launched in 2014 by Flexner and Jay Reifel, a chef with experience at Michelin-starred eateries, holds pop-up dinner parties around New York City, exploring the past through food and drink. Their mission aligns neatly with that of Williamsburg’s two-year-old Museum of Food and Drink, and the two organizations are collaborating on a series of events this year called Dinners of the Past (June’s theme was the spice trade of the medieval world; future events cover Shakespearean London and the fall of Rome). “Food and culture are elements that demonstrate not only a historic period, but also a way of thinking at the time,” explained MOFAD’s executive chef John Hutt.
