As I sit on my couch “working from home”, I’m trying to doubly-educate myself by watching the TED channel: Food Matters on Netflix. After doing my first TEDx event this past fall, I’ve fallen in love with the TED concept and the “ideas worth spreading” that it shares, I can’t stop watching the TED talks. Luckily, their food channels has thus far featured Dan Barber twice. His talks make me feel like an undereducated, inexperienced, hopeful child who has an entire world of vocabulary and tasting experiences in front of her. If you have time, watch his two videos on fish and foie gras. He turns tasting food into a soulful experience, an almost religious experience.
And although I may have a new budding crush on Dan’s cooking, philosophy, and brain in general, the channel also has a plethora of other talks that are equally as interesting. Jennifer Lee Hunts for General Tso. Jamie Oliver’s Food Evolution. The list goes on, and the day continues to teach me I have a lot to learn and at the same time, constantly bring to mind “What am I going to eat for lunch?”
