I know this happened yesterday, but I thought I would least clue you in to this sort of event. The University of Chicago holds a surprising number of food-related lectures, discussions and workshops - the crowd favorite is the annual hamentaschen vs. latke debate that happens around Hannukah time (not around Purim; a subtle bias? Also, I am aware that they spell the name of the triangular cookie differently than I do. Take it up with your rabbi). But I find the subject of this workshop somewhat more intriguing, in that it is not a deliberate farce. You can imagine a lawyer saying, “but your Honor, my client copyrighted oregano years ago!” In my head, the lawyer is British, and wearing a wig, and pronouncing it or-e-GA-no.
