Join the Slow Food NYC Book Club for an evening with author Aaron Bobrow-Strain, as he discusses his new book White Bread: A Social History of the Store-Bought Loaf.
White Bread teaches us that when Americans debate what one should eat, they are also wrestling with larger questions of race, class, immigration, and gender. As Bobrow-Strain traces the story of bread, from the first factory loaf to the latest gourmet pain au levain, he shows how efforts to champion "good food" reflect dreams of a better society—even as they reinforce stark social hierarchies.
