“One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly
stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating.”
But what do we eat? Where does it come from? How do we prepare it? FOOD FOR THOUGHT, the Social Sciences & Humanities Library’s latest exhibit, offers some answers to these questions. The exhibit explores the intersections surrounding food and health, gardening, farming, politics, sustainability and more. Visit the exhibit to learn interesting food facts, explore kitchen curiosities, watch videos on related topics, and learn about the history and future of urban farms.
One goal of the Food for Thought display is to help make the UC San Diego Library community aware of the resources that are available on these topics. A Resource Guide, highlighting books, journals, and videos from our collections is available online at http://ucsd.libguides.com/food
Culinary curiosities abound in our exhibit! Name the unidentified tools in the Kitchen Curiosities cabinet and tell us what they’re used for. Correct answers will be entered into a drawing to win a copy of Su Mei Yu’s Elements of Life: A Contemporary Guide to Thai Recipes and Traditions for Healthier Living. Identify the 3 mystery foods and you can enter to win another copy of the book!
The exhibit is located in the Social Sciences & Humanities Library’s Reference Area (enter the Geisel Library building, go all the way to your left). We hope the display catches your eye, whets your appetite, and sparks your imagination. Bon appétit!
