Deconstructing the Taco: The History and Lore of a Beloved Food with Gregory McNamee

March 7 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

FREE

The foods of Arizona speak to the many cultures, native and newcomer, that make up our state. Consider the taco, that favorite treat, a staple of Mexican and Mexican American cooking and an old standby on an Arizonan’s plate. The corn in the tortilla comes from Mexico, the cheese from the Sahara, the lettuce from Egypt, the onion from Syria, the tomatoes from South America, the chicken from Indochina, the beef from the steppes of Eurasia. Join Gregory McNamee, the author of Moveable Feasts: The History, Science, and Lore of Food, in exploring these many traditions.

This event is cohosted by Pima County Public Library – Salazar-Ajo Branch. This is an in-person event.
