Session Details

From Food Flavors to the World's Smells

Thursday, March 25 | 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM CT


Harold McGee, Author

In 2010, Harold McGee began work on a book about the flavors of food and drink. A decade later, he published a book about food and drink--but also about outer space, pets, people, laptops, petrochemicals, perfumes, and more. In this session McGee will explain how he came to dive into volatile chemistry, and how it is that smell is the bridge between our experience of foods and our experience of the larger world.
