Dan Jurafsky discusses and signs his book The Language of Food: A Linguist Reads the Menu

Tuesday, Sep 16 7:30p
Kepler's Books Menlo Park, CA

Did you know that ketchup, America’s national condiment, began as a fermented fish sauce from China’s Fujian province, and its linguistic origins are “ke” for fermented fish and “tchup” for sauce?

Dan Jurafsky introduces us to the origins of some of our most beloved foods and culinary customs, shedding light on little-known facts and serving up the sort of trivia that is guaranteed to tickle the taste buds of foodies far and wide.
