    How to Cater a Roman Orgy: A discussion with Merry “Corky” White, author of Cooking for Crowds


    Thompson Room, Barker Center
    7:30pm to 9:00pm

    In the 1970s, needing money for graduate school, Merry “Corky” White took a catering job at Harvard’s Center for European Studies. The gig led to a lifelong friendship with then-neighbor Julia Child, hours of culinary research in the basement of Widener Library, and a meeting that led to the book Cooking for Crowds, which was recently re-released for its 40th anniversary.
