Can the ritual of baking a loaf of bread every week make you saner and happier? Dr. Beth Ricanati, longtime internist and women's health expert, thinks it can - and she has the science and the baking know-how to prove it. Join Dr. Ricanati, along with food writer and cultural anthropologist Kelly Alexander, for a discussion of cooking as an immersive, embodied form of care - for ourselves and for others - in precarious times. Light lunch served.
