Special Partnership Presentation
Featured Speaker: Patti Wright, Ph.D., Department of Anthropology, Sociology, and Languages, University of Missouri - St. Louis
Food Crops of American origin—chocolate, chili peppers, corn, manioc, peanuts, potatoes, squashes, and tomatoes—provide nourishment and dietary variety to millions of people throughout the world. Have you ever wondered how the tomato, once considered unfit to eat, became the most common garden item in the U.S.? Did you know that corn is a grass? What is manioc? Join us for a discussion of the myth, history, and biology associated with some of our favorite foods.
