As viewed from the East River Ferry

This panel discussion took place on December 11th, 2015, at the Raaka Chocolate factory.  We’re pleased to present the full-length recording here.

In the early 20th century, diverse immigrant populations started food businesses which strengthened and added character to Brooklyn neighborhoods, but the “original” food culture is dying out. Are gentrification and big business washing out the rich history of immigrant food? Is the new Brooklyn brand trending toward homogeny? How will this affect our future?

Panelists:

Sarah Lohman, Culinary Historian, Founding Editor of Four Pounds Flour

Cindy Lobel, Associate Professor of History at Lehman College

David Meade, Executive Director of South Brooklyn Industrial Development Corp.

Moderator:

Peter Gray, Community Director of Raaka Chocolate

 

Race, Place, and Authenticity in the Brooklyn Food Scene is a series of panel discussions presented by Heritage Radio Network, Local Roots NYC, and Raaka Chocolate. We’re exploring identity through food and drink in a series of panel discussions on food labeling, beverage culture, and the history of food manufacturing.
