The Food Seen
Charlie Baum of Cool Culinaria
On today's THE FOOD SEEN, Charlie Baum, a generational lifer in the restaurant industry, and avid collector of museum-worthy vintage food & beverage memorabilia, recently co-founded Cool Culinaria as a place to display and disseminate such artworks. Fine prints and menus, spanning over the past 100 years, from Cafe Anglais in France (1890) to Steuben's The Cave in Boston (50's), The Oyster Loaf in SF (40's), El Rancho in Las Vegas ('42), China Doll ('46), Rudy's ('38), and Leon & Eddie's ('42) all in NYC, Cool Culinaria is here to preserve our rich visual dining history. Today's episode is sponsored by The International Culinary Center.
