    I am a culinary historian, and scrolling through the endless food on Instagram makes me hungry. No, not for the fresh-baked sourdough rolls nestled so prettily in a linen napkin or that jaunty tumbler of strawberry mousse sporting its shiny green sprigs of mint. They look delicious, but what really makes my mouth water is the thought of all the stories behind them — everything that happened in the kitchen before you picked up your phone and clicked.

    "Instagram Your Leftovers: History Depends on It" is from the September 02, 2017 Opinion section of The New York Times. It was written by Laura Shapiro and narrated by Keith Sellon-Wright.
