Lecture | Food Cultures In Iceland, Australia & New Zealand says
A special lecture with world travelers Irene Shaland (author) and Alex Shaland (photographer)

In geological terms, Iceland and New Zealand are mere babies. The countries are situated on the youngest landmasses in the world forged by fire and water. Their people live in the shadow of disaster: volcano eruptions for Iceland and earthquakes for New Zealand, and they consider dramatic changes and abrupt disruptions as mere facts of life. On the contrary, Australia, the world’s largest island, is believed to be the oldest, flattest and driest continent. Discover how these three countries' location, nature and history shaped their food culture.

Irene will also introduce her latest book "The Dao of Being Jewish and Other Stories: Seeking Jewish Narrative All Over the World,” and sign copies following the presentation.

This talk is included with general admission ($8/person after 5pm Wednesdays). Check out the "Our Global Kitchen: Food, Nature, Culture" exhibition while you're here!
