[ARCHIVED] Food Fads of the 1940s and 1960s

Remember Jell-O salads and cheese sprayed out of a can? When every pantry held Velveeta and all the kids wanted to drink Tang like the astronauts? Join award-winning actress and scholar Leslie Goddard for a nostalgic look at the food innovations and marketing approaches that transformed how we ate at midcentury. Using classic cookbooks, advertisements, and family magazines, explore how society and technology shaped American food from the 1940’s through the 1960s.

Food Fads on the 1940s to 1960s on Saturday, November 5 at 10 AM.
