The Future of Food (Hopefully)

barberI haven’t read Chef Dan Barber’s book yet. It’s entitled The Third Plate: Field Notes on the Future of Food and describes his vision of a new way of eating that is both sustainable and more flavorful.

But this Ted Talk makes me want to move it to the top of my list. Barber describes a fish farm so ecologically healthy that it doesn’t need to feed its fish and that gladly loses 20% of its fish stock to birds who feed daily on the overabundant resources created by sound ecological farming practices.

He is a good speaker; it’s worth 20 minutes of your time.
