Themes Food Matters

Food Matters

A cornucopia of great TEDTalks about food: growing it, cooking it, consuming it -- and making sure there's enough for all. From Dan Barber's poignant tale of fois gras ... to Jamie Oliver's fighting words about kids' lunches ... to Louise Fresco's economic unpacking of a simple loaf of bread ... these talks examine big ideas through the food we eat.
