Chewing the Fat: Lazarus Event Series


About Chewing the Fat

The Lazarus Events Series for Sustainable Food & Agriculture at Yale, also known as “Chewing the Fat,” is funded through a generous gift from Dr. George and Shelly Lazarus and offers Yale students a chance to learn more about food and farming through guest speakers, culinary workshops, and film screenings. 

Over the years, the Sustainable Food Program has hosted event where Yale students have taken cooking workshops with Michael Anthony and pickle guru Sandor Katz, toured New Haven’s community gardens with Growing Power’s Will Allen, interviewed food science writer Harold McGee, shared meals and conversations with Michael Pollan and Alice Waters, learned about methods of farming with four-season farmer Eliot Coleman, attended lectures with Slow Food International’s Carlo Petrini, and spent an entire weekend with 2013 Chubb Fellow Wendell Berry

Agrarian Studies Colloquium Series

At the core of Yale’s Program in Agrarian Studies is a weekly colloquium organized around an annual theme. Invited specialists send papers in advance that are the focus of an organized discussion by the faculty and graduate students associated with the colloquium. Meetings occur through the fall and spring semesters every Friday from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm, in Luce Hall, Room 302, at 34 Hillhouse Avenue. Since 1991, the Colloquium series has provided a chance for students and leading writers, activists, and visionaries to engage in dialogue with one another. Former guests who have shared their work at the colloquium include Michael Pollan, Sheila Jasanoff, José Bové, Vaclav Smil, and Rene Redzepi.
