Darra Goldstein and The Oxford Companion to Sugar and Sweets


Museum Lecture Hall

Darra Goldstein, editor of The Oxford Companion to Sugar and Sweets, discusses her new book with Marcia Reed, chief curator at the Getty Research Institute. More than just a compendium of pastries, candies, ices, preserves, and confections, this reference work reveals how the human proclivity for sweets has brought richness to language, art, and, of course, gastronomy.

This lecture complements the exhibition The Edible Monument: The Art of Food for Festivals, on view at the Getty Research Institute from October 13, 2015, to March 13, 2016.
