Join Columbia College Chicago's office of Asian American Cultural Affairs for a special edition of Food for Thought!
Try food from Iran and learn about the traditional Persian new year, Norooz, which falls on the vernal equinox.
In the Zoroastrian tradition, a celebratory table spread called "haft-seen" is laid out with seven objects symbolizing the return of new life in spring. Come to the gallery to learn more about one of these items, pickled garlic ("torshi-eh seer"), also known as Seven Year Pickle because it is best eaten after being aged several years.
Your host will be artist and First-Year Seminar faculty member Fereshteh Toosi, who is exhibiting garlic pickles in the gallery for the current show RISK: Empathy, Art, and Social Practice.
All Columbia students, faculty, and staff are welcome!
Lunch will be served.
Seating is limited. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
