A Thanksgiving look at the cultural importance of shared meals

Share

Thursday is Thanksgiving and for many families that means gathering together around a table full of food.

To look at the historical and cultural significance of shared meals in human history, WMNF interviewed Rebecca Rupp. She’s a food historian and contributes to National Geographic’s The Plate, a food-related blog. Her most recent story is Eat, Drink and Be Merry.
