WHAT: Join James Beard award-winning author and curator Rebekah Denn in a lively conversation with the Museum of History & Industry’s (MOHAI) executive director, Leonard Garfield, as they share “behind-the-scenes” insights about the curation of MOHAI’s Edible City: A Delicious Journey exhibit. In addition, Denn will sign copies of the exhibit’s companion book, Edible City.

DETAILS: Through photos and narratives, Edible City journeys from the city’s early eating days up through the modern boom, introducing iconic figures and signature foods. It also includes several recipes that helped define the region, from the Dutch Baby invented by a local restaurateur to an irresistible shortcake using strawberries developed by Washington State University.
