Taste Matters: Andrea Petrini

 Andrea Petrini

How do perceptions of the culinary world differ between the United States and Europe—and how are the two notions connected? On yesterday’s forward-thinking episode of Taste Matters, I was joined by international gastronomist Andrea Petrini, who equates food to performance and credits chefs with being cultural artists. He describes his latest project,GELINAZ, a collective culinary entity with a wild bunch of cutting-edge chefs and an intriguing manifesto. To learn more, listen here.

Taste Matters is a radio program dedicated to taste: as a sense, cultural construct, and culinary phenomenon. However much we talk about where our food comes from, how it’s produced, who prepares it, or what sorts of socio-cultural-political implications our food choices and eating behaviors have, taste is fundamental. I host the show live weekly on Wednesday at 11 am on the member-supported Heritage Radio Network.
