A totally non-Valentine themed event, and a totally affordable one, is to be had tomorrow night at the New School . As part of their "Culinary Luminaries" series, the school's Food Studies program considers the life and work of James Beard, aka the "dean of American cookery" per the New York Times .

Speakers include Mitchell Davis, vice president of the James Beard Foundation; writers Betty Fussell, Barbara Kafka, and Judith Jones; and Dana Polan, professor of Cinema Studies at New York University.

All the details are after the jump.
