Adam Gopnik - Food: The Table Comes First (Part of the Bristol Festival of Ideas)

Monday 28th November 2011 6:30pm - 7:30pm Bristol, Foyles, 6 Quakers Friars, Cabot Circus, Bristol, BS1 3BU Literary Event, Free Event

Throughout history every generation has believed that it alone knows the true value of food, and looked with distaste on the culinary practices of its predecessors. Adam Gopnik envisions a new 'physiology of taste' that will enable us to dispense with this moralising attitude and concentrate on the pleasure principle: food is to be enjoyed, and to help us enjoy life in turn.

Venue: Upstairs at Foyles, Bristol
Tickets: Free; visit http://www.eventbrite.com/event/2366642692 to reserve places
