The Future of Protein Dinner Tickets, Tue, Jun 28, 2016 at 7:00 PM | Eventbrite
"Dine on the Future of Protein
One of the most enduring and resonant themes in the realm of food and eating is that of protein.
In this inaugural Future Market dinner series, we take you on a journey through the past, present and what we speculate will be the future of protein consumption.
Each course is an edible exploration of the cultural, nutritional, and environmental zeitgeist around the future of protein. From the wild roaming protein sources of the 1800s to the next frontier of protein from insects and plants, we will give you a full experience of where our food system has been and where it’s going.
This dinner will be held at the Museum of Food and Drink (MOFAD) Lab in Brooklyn, NY, one of the best venues in the world to explore the culture, history, science, production, and commerce of food and drink.
It’s all delicious, and designed to feed your mind as well as your body. Join us.
