Combat Rations and You: Tasting and Talk
Jan 21, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm| $15
Prosciutto and hardtack? Chia and pumpkin seeds? MREs (Meals, Ready to Eat)? Come sample combat rations through the ages and learn how the U.S. military, in its quest to create edibles for soldiers, has spawned a plethora of modern processed foods, from energy bars and Cheetos to McRibs and plastic wrap. Antacids optional.
Anastacia Marx de Salcedo, author of Combat-Ready Kitchen: How the U.S. Military Shapes the Way You Eat (Penguin Random House, 2015)
