The Future of Food
Last week, I had the opportunity to travel to Austin, Texas for my organization’s annual fall conference. I was very excited for the conference not only because it was the culmination of many months of work and planning, but also because the theme was sustainable agriculture! The topics we covered during our three days could each be a blog post on their own (in fact, I’ll be delving into many of these topics in future posts), but for now, here’s just a taste of what we learned.
Greetings from Austin
While so far, Dinners With Dan has been recipe-heavy, food isn’t always just about recipes. There’s a lot more to the culinary world than simply combining ingredients and making tasty dishes: where does the food you’re buying come from? How was it grown or raised? How do our food choices affect the environment? The economy? When it comes to eating, I feel there is a time for recipes, and also a place for reflection.
It’s with this in mind that I am excited to welcome you to a new aspect of Dinners With Dan. Today’s blog post is brought to you by Molly, one of Dinners With Dan‘s new featured contributors and short essayists. Molly will be contributing short essays to Dinners With Dan and I leave it to her to introduce herself and give you a preview of things to come. I hope you enjoy her writing as much as I do.
