EAT: The Story of Food / The Future of Food
Chefs José Andrés and Barton Seaver talk about the importance of food as a resource and how we can save it.
Food. It's driven nearly everything we've ever done as a species, and yet it's one of the most overlooked aspects of human history. In the beginning, our hunger drove us to hunt. Then, it led us to plant and settle, resulting in civilization. We conquered the land, and we went out into the ocean and then the larger world. We filled our bellies, but it still wasn't enough. Because as humans became more sophisticated, so did our needs—we searched for flavor and convenience, adapting science and technology to match our cravings.
