February 18, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
On Thursday, February 18, 2021, Old Pueblo Archaeology Center’s “Third Thursday Food for Thought” online Zoom program will feature “¡Buen Provecho! A Multicultural History of Mexico and the Borderlands through Food and Taste” by historian Dr. Michael Brescia. This free presentation will be held at 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. Arizona/Mountain Standard Time.
This presentation examines how the fusion of foods and diet of the Americas and beyond transformed Mexico in the wake of the Spanish conquest and the establishment of Spanish colonialism in North America. Historian Dr. Michael Brescia will provide a food history of Mexico and the northern Borderlands region and discuss the cultural significance of a mestizaje of taste, or the blending of foodways and nutritional regimes that changed global palates. In a richly illustrated lecture, Michael will show how different cuisines and dishes reflect the broad sweep of the Mexican and Borderlands historical experiences.
