Class: Steven Stein - Food & Culture Book Group (Corte Madera Store)

Monday, January 7, 2019 - 7:00pm

Four Mondays; Jan. 7, Feb. 4, Mar. 4, & Apr. 1, 2019 • 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm • $100

The foods we choose, and the places we dine say a lot about how we live. This group will read four quite different books - each with an entertaining and informative narrative - that focus on food and dining, and their impacts on society.

Steve Stein spent over thirty years in the food and lodging industry before turning his attention to finance and economics. He’s probably also spent too much time at the dinner table.
