Webinar – What’s Cooking: Introduction to Culinary Translation (10:00am-12:00pm PST)- Ticketing Page for Members

December 12, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


This is the ticketing page for members with reduced pricing.

Over the past years, there has been a popular interest in food and cooking thanks to globalization and the multiplication of food-related media – cookbooks, magazines, TV programs and foodies blogs. There have never been as many cookbooks published, translated and purchased as nowadays. But cooking is much more than food, it is about culture, identity and language as reflected by Brillat-Savarin: “Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you who you are”. How difficult can it be to translate menus and cookbooks? Chicken with pasta and tomato sauce – that sounds easy enough to translate! The truth is, it is not as easy as it sounds…

Join us for this webinar to delve into the world of culinary translation and take part in hands-on activities!
