Upcoming Events

October 22, 2023 - Dr. Ihor Lylo

It is not often that culinary historians get to discuss something topical, so please join us, Sunday, October 22, 2023, at 5:00pm PDT, for a very unusual presentation. Ihor Lylo is a Ukrainian culinary historian and professor at the Ivan Franko National University in Lviv, Ukraine, but is currently a visiting professor at the University of California San Diego, as part of their Scholars at Risk Program.

Professor Lylo will be speaking on the history of the cuisine of Ukraine and the way it has forged a cultural identity that is helping to keep the people of Ukraine united during this terrible time. He writes, "Today, as many years ago, Ukrainians courageously fight for their freedom against Russian imperialism and tyranny. A crucial part of their struggle is their gastronomic identity."

This should be a fascinating presentation by a speaker with a unique perspective on cuisine and war.
