Tomatoes & Ptomaines: Innovation and Endangerment in the Industrial Food Era

Tomatoes & Ptomaines: Innovation and Endangerment in the Industrial Food Era

Sunday, April 18 @ 2 pm

At the end of the 19th-century, food production technology helped save time and even save lives. It also created new flavors and textures… and opportunities for dangerous food adulteration. Join Kara Mae Harris of Old Line Plate for an interactive discussion about the highs and lows of industrial food production. This one-hour Zoom meeting will include a brief presentation including items from the BMI’s collections as well as time for participants to share their own experiences. This program will be recorded.
