New Haven loves its food — growing it, foraging for it, cooking it, eating it. And that is exactly what NHFPL Ives Squared Creative-in-Residence Nadine Nelson and her guest, Esther Tseng, discussed on this week’s Co-Create program.

From the influence of indigenous cultures on the food we eat today to the future of food and the revival in the interest of home cooking and gardening, Nadine and Esther really explored many aspects of contemporary food culture and the impact it has on our everyday lives.
