Food & Wine Lecturer Offers Insight into the Military Preparation of Civilian Food

Anastacia Marx de Salcedo, author of Combat-Ready Kitchen: How the U.S. Military Shapes the Way You Eat, will discuss those same topics explored in her book as part of the MET Programs in Food & Wine Pépin Lecture Series. The free seminar on Wednesday, March 16, will examine how those traits most prized in soldier sustenance—imperishability, durability, affordability, and appeal to a broad range of palates—have ended up dominating our grocery store shelves and refrigerator cases, often to the detriment of consumer health.
