    Solutions to Global Warming - A Cullinary Perspective

    The Oakland Environmental Lecture Series was developed in the mid 90ties to help establish an environmental culture and bring awareness to City staff about cutting edge environmental trends. I'll be presenting:

    Solutions to Global Warming - A Culinary Perspective

    Global warming has become a defining scientific, political and social issue of our era. Interest has spurred reduction of carbon “foot-prints,” but not much on reducing carbon “food-prints;” the effect that our industrial food system has on global warming. This talk tackles the issue, focusing on how food impacts climate change and what you can do about it. Laura Stec, author of Cool Cuisine: Taking the Bite Out of Global Warming, examine connections between food, environment, energy, and economy, offering ways to reduce food-prints through revised business models and food choices. She incorporates the work of co-author and atmospheric scientist Dr. Eugene Cordero, wjere he looks at research on the energy efficiency of our food system in relationship to our changing climate and our economic system. Chef Laura talks solution thru a "culinary perspective," introducing ideas such as “soil as a seasoning agent,” "plastic and water pairing," "energetics of high-vibe foods." A mini culinary “how-to” class completes the presentation.
