Inquiring minds want to know: What was Shakespeare noshing on as he penned A Midsummer Night's Dream? As part of the 450th birthday celebration of William Shakespeare, coinciding with this year's California International Antiquarian Book Fair, the culinary life and times of the Elizabethan bard will be discussed in a lively panel discussion. Pulitzer Prize-winning food critic Jonathan Gold, food historian Charles Perry, James Beard Award-winning cookbook author Anne Willan, and bookseller Ben Kinmont weigh in on the food and drink habits during this period; afterwards, foodies and historians alike can visit rare books on food and cookery at the fair's Shakespeare exhibit.
