Why Taste Matters.
Everyone’s talking about food. With a First Lady dedicated to providing access to healthy food for kids and a country filled with “foodies”, it’s not surprise that 2012 was overflowing with food conversations. One of the best that we’ve stumbled across was TEDxManhatten’s videos, all focused on the topic, “Changing the Way we Eat”. With another slew of speakers coming in February of 2013, we won’t be at a loss for informative videos about our food system.
The video that really stuck with us was Mitchell Davis’ video about taste changing our food system. In this video Mitchell discusses how taste not only has the power to tempt our taste buds, it can also be a catalyst for social change. The video gets you thinking about the power of taste, and is something to think about as we enter into another year of food.
