the restless of the seed

I bequeath myself to the dirt

To grow from the grass I love

If you want me

Look for me under your boot soles

I lie there waiting for you

FOOD=TRADITION=HERITAGE=CONNECTION

I was recently asked what most excites me about food, right now and for the upcoming year.  My answer was immediate: the way food connects us.  Food and recipes place us in a continuity that goes all the way back to our beginnings.  Right now, they bring us together in community.  Tradition is the means by which this happens—the magic sauce that bonds.

The social, communal, rhythmic nature of restaurants is important. They are places not just to talk, but to share oxygen, trade molecules, to sync up, to “mutual phase lock” or “entrain.” 

I'm not a restaurateur, but rather a proponent of connecting thinking about eating, food, he social, communal, rhythmic nature of restaurants is important. They are places not just to talk, but to share oxygen, trade molecules, to sync up, to “mutual phase lock” or “entrain.” When in beautifully designed spaces, we feel more alive, connected to pleasure, to ourselves, and to one another, hence improving health. I was recently asked what most excites me about food, right now and for the upcoming year.

Something here about the design

of the space and possibly how it adds to health, nutrition and connectivity.
