My personal Valentine's Day present came a bit early. I had the amazing opportunity to attend the TEDx Manhattan event "Changing the Way We Eat" this past Saturday.
An entire day moderated by Laurie David and filled with inspiring ideas and foodie and sustainable agriculture innovators. Among the most intriguing among them - Elizabeth Meltz, who's leading the charge to make all of Mario Batali's restaurants green and sustainable, and Dr. William Li, who's leading up some pretty incredible research on foods that actually protect against and even prevent cancer before it starts. I'll be doing a whole write up on Li's research and his Eat to Defeat Cancer campaign later this month on Culinate.com. Stay tuned and happy Valentine's Day!
