Johanna Mendelson Forman:                                              Tasting Cuba: History, Hospitality, and Food

Art of Living series, Smithsonian Associates

Welcome to The Not Old Better Show, I’m your host, Paul Vogelzang.  As part of our Smithsonian Associates partnership program, our guest today, Johanna Mendelson Forman, is an expert on the relationship between food, history, culture and life. Johanna will be appearing at the Smithsonian Associates program, June 5, 2017, Washington, DC, at the Ripley Center, presenting on the subject of Tasting Cuba: History , Hospitality, and the Foods of Memory. A special note:  following Johanna’s presentation on the evening of June 5, attendees will sample Cuban foods.  Johanna maintains that we learn, we understand, we communicate, and solve conflict through the taste of food, and with the recent re-opening of Cuba, there is much to experience…

Johanna is a fascinating guest, and I’m certain you’ll love this interview.  I learned a great deal from Johanna, who, over 20 years of experience, has become one of the leading voices on this new approach to the intersection of food, history, hospitality, culture and even conflict.
