What does having “good taste” mean and why should you care?
Fill your plate with inspiring insights from expert chefs, scientists, behavioral economists, designers, and growers, and take away a new-found understanding of the impact your personal choices have on your wellbeing and that of the planet.
In a world where we celebrate caviar and foie gras as the pinnacle of luxury and forego the goodness that sprouts up at our feet, lacking the literacy to acknowledge or opportunity to access it, the hidden costs are much more than the price itself.
Join us at the table for a conversation between a renowned chef and an urban forager as well as a preview of the newly released documentary film, In Good Taste!
