TED on Food

I spent most of the afternoon doing some writing, organising and editing photos. And then watched lots of TED videos regarding ideas and concepts completely related to food. I am so inspired.

Just a few days ago, I was reading about the Danish chef of Noma (the world’s number 1 restaurant) and his amazing sustainable natural way of sourcing ingredients in his own backyard—a true feat in a country like Denmark.

I love his concept: “[working] on a new venison dish. ‘We imagine ourselves being the deer,’ he said. ‘What does it step on?’

His answer: snails and fiddlehead ferns. “The flavors will go together,” he said. “Snails and deer: they live together. They have a symbiosis.”
