Harold McGee’s Olefactory Journey

Our next program at Foreign Cinema features Harold McGee in conversation with Emily Luchetti about his new book, Nose Dive: A Field Guide to the World’s Smells. 

The book began as a project about the flavors of food and drink, but expanded over the course of a decade to encompass the smells of the material world at large, which flavors often echo. Smells are triggered by molecular bits of that world, and Nose Dive explores their presence in interstellar space and the early earth, in forests and meadows, seacoasts and cities, in and on our own bodies, and finally their contribution to incense and perfumes, food and wine and spirits.

Join us for a lively discussion. Omnivore Books will there with his book for sale!
