A Tale of Two Cities’ Food Histories

Food processing, such as meat butchering and beer brewing, began as a mostly urban industry.  During the last few decades, though, many manufacturers left the city.   Today, some of that production is returning to cities, while other industries that never left are seeing a renaissance.  Learn about how food shaped, and continues to shape, the histories of New York City and San Francisco with historians Robin Shulman, author of Eat the City, and Chris Carlsson, director of Shaping San Francisco.
