In 2008, Steve Ettlinger took apart a particularly iconic treat in his book "Twinkie, Deconstructed," tracing the origins of its ingredients back to unexpected places, like the gypsum mines of Oklahoma. In his forthcoming book with photographer Dwight Eschliman, Foodstuff, 75 of the most common food ingredients are examined in detail—for better or for worse. Ettlinger and Eschliman will share some of their findings, raising important questions about whether or not the fact that something is edible means that we should be eating it.
The event will be moderated by Dan Pashman, the creator and host of the James Beard Award-nominated podcast and blog The Sporkful.
