My friend Carol—last FL at Home post!—Blymire sent a link to my presentation, below, at the Chautauqua Institute this past August (which I hadn't realized was available), a mini food rant of sorts, I guess you'd call it. I urge you also to listen to Dan Barber's excellent story, following my words, about his trip to the foie gras farmer who does not practice gavage. We both talk for 20 minutes, followed by brief Q&A. (Other speakers during the week included author Marion Nestle and Greg Page, CEO of agribusiness giant, Cargill, Inc.)
Also this weekend, don't miss the Iron Chef Rematch, Symon vs Cosentino, on which I was lucky enough to judge. Sunday, October 26 at 9 pm eastern. Clever viewers may guess the mystery ingredient—kudos to the food network, the production company triage, and of course The Chairman, for the choice.
