Taste and the Food System: My TEDx Manhattan Talk

January 21, 2012, was a day of enlightening presentations on the state of our food system at the TEDx Manhattan conference at the swank Times Center in the New York Times building. “Changing the Way We Eat” is the theme of the annual gathering, and I was honored to be asked to speak along with an amazing group of people who are doing just that. My topic was taste, and how taste can be used as a tool for social change. Taste isn’t just about what you like, but it reflects and refracts a society’s values. An emphasis on taste can lead to better decisions about how and where we grow our food, how we distribute and market it, who we prepare it, and what policies we enact to ensure a better, safer, more equal, and more delicious future for everyone. Enjoy.
