Treasures of the CHNY Archive contains programs going back to at least 2012. The lifeblood of the CHNY is our monthly programs, where we explore the historic highways and byways of food and cookery. Our speakers are noted authors, historians, anthropologists, scientists, activists, and food and wine experts, who illuminate the role of food, whether in the distant and recent past, the present, or even the future. Our events are informal and combine lively, accessible presentations with serious scholarship. Receptions include tastings that illustrate the presentations.
