Each month, the Masters of Social Gastronomy take on a curious food topic and break down the history, science, and stories behind them. This month, we cover the human body from mouth to butt.
What's the story with your microbiome, all those little microbes living in your gut? Soma takes apart the science behind the ecology of our insides, including laying down the law about pro- and anti-biotics.
Sarah reveals what studying the mouth and teeth of our earliest human ancestors reveals about evolution, and what the discovery of the World's Oldest Poop - officially known as "paleofeces" - tells us about the Neanderthal diet. Sneak peak: an authentic Paleo Diet includes cannibalism.
For Story Time, special guest sewage expert Kimberly Worsham will give us a run down on the long and fascinating history of toilets, from ancient Mesopotamia to today.
Doors: 6:30pm / Show: 7:00pm

Dubbed a “historic gastronomist,” Sarah Lohman recreates historic recipes as a way to make a personal connection with the past. She chronicles her explorations in culinary history on her blog, Four Pounds Flour, and her work has been featured in The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. She appears on the Cooking Channel’s Food: Fact or Fiction? and is 1/2 of the Masters of Social Gastronomy with co-founder Jonathan Soma.
Currently, she works with museums and galleries around the city to create public programs focused on food, including institutions such as The American Museum of Natural History, The Museum of Science, Boston, and The Lower East Side Tenement Museum. Her first book, Eight Flavors: The Untold Story of American Cuisine, was published with Simon & Schuster in 2016.
Soma was born in the South, is what someone from the North would say. He cooks for fun, codes for hire, and has more hobbies than can dance on the head of a pin. His work has been featured everywhere from Gawker to The New York Times.
