CAROLYN STEEL: HUNGRY CITY

Carolyn Steel is an architect, lecturer and writer. Her book Hungry City: How Food Shapes Our Lives describes the urban through food and uses food as a lens to explore how cities are fed, looking at food in the urban metropolis from farm to table to garbage can. Her interest lies is in exploring the inner lives of cities, and her work has focused on developing a lateral approach to urban design that looks at the everyday routines that shape cities and the way we inhabit them. She has run design studios at the London School of Economics, London Metropolitan University and at Cambridge University, where her lecture course ‘Food and the City’ is an established part of the degree program.

Whit JonesWriter; Co-Field Director, Energy Action Coalition

Sustainability in the food movement lies at the cross section of food, energy, cooking and farming. The term used in common vernacular as issues surrounding farming, the food industry, green energy and local food become increasingly more visible to mainstream America. The food and sustainability “movement” has taken off…but how? We hear from a diverse group of players on building a modern day movement using varying forms of media, communication, and conversation.

As food imagery has become more and more prevalent in academia, the arts, and mass media, the rise of the term “Food Porn” has gained increasing popularity. Yet, food porn, much like traditional forms of pornography, has a wavering definition. What is food porn exactly? What is the relationship to food and sex? Is there one and what does it matter? Hear the answers from a gathering of experienced food writers, critics, and tv personalities in FOOD + PORN.


FOOD + COOKING + CHANGE 

Peter Kaminsky, Author and New York Times Columnist (moderator)

Tamar Adler, Author, An Everlasting Meal

Bryant Terry, Chef, Activist, Author, The Inspired Vegan

Mona Talbott, Chef; Author, Zuppe

Chefs and food writers are becoming increasingly more aware of their role in our food system and many are beginning to take an active role in changing the way we eat and think about food. Are these chefs activists or just concerned citizens? In FOOD + COOKING + CHANGE we ask a group of dedicated chefs: Can we change the world through the way we cook?
