Cultural Event- When Luxury Floated Through The Skies: Travel and Dining Aboard Zeppelins
When Luxury Floated Through The Skies: Travel and Dining Aboard Zep peli n
s – The earliest form of aerial transportation was arguably the most glamorous – zeppelins competed with ocean liners for comfort, and far outpaced them for speed. Passengers could travel from Germany to Brazil in a mere four days, or to America in three, all the time enjoying unparalleled views by day, gourmet meals and music from the world’s only aluminum piano by night. This talk will transport you to the brief, doomed era of the giant airships.
Richard Foss is a journalist, author, culinary historian, and lecturer based in Manhattan Beach, California. He has written for newspapers and magazines around California for almost thirty years and has written two books, “ Rum: A Global History ” and the recently released “ Food In The Air and Space: The Surprising History of Food and Drink in the Skies .”
He has previously presented his talk "The Diet of Dickens" at the Village.
