Monthly lectures with curriculum-based tastings are CHNY’s raison d’être, bringing together scholars, chefs, scientists and the intellectually curious to explore the past, present, and future of food and drink. Our programs are stimulating and erudite, but are accessible to a general audience; our congenial atmosphere guarantees an enjoyable and culturally rich evening.
Until we can confidently and safely gather again in person, all programs will be virtual, through Zoom. To recreate the convivial and scholarly feel of our in-person events, we will have interactive live “meetings” where you will be able to ask questions of the speakers, interact through chats with other CHNY members, and even share our receptions virtually through a recipe or two that we will send in advance for you to prepare, should the kitchen spirits move you.
We have prepared this Zoom 101 document as a reference for those who are new to Zoom or would like a little more understanding of how the technology works.
