Veggietrivia: TEDxCambridge event

Just got wind of this interesting-sounding foodie event at MIT on Sunday. You have to apply to attend (there may still be time), but it'll also be webcast.

TEDxCambridge presents “How do you eat?” a celebration of food, Sunday, May 16th at the MIT Stata Center. We’re bringing together chefs, psychologists, writers, designers and engineers for a surprising look at science, art and the future of food.

The event is inspired in part by Jamie Oliver’s TED Prize wish “to create a strong, sustainable movement to educate every child about food, inspire families to cook again and empower people everywhere to fight obesity.”

“How do you eat?” is a question meant to be interpreted broadly. We are reaching out to an eclectic pool of speakers including Boston-area chefs, restaurateurs, biologists, psychologists, engineers, designers, artists, writers, and food historians. We’re particularly interested in content related to: sustainability; international development; the global obesity epidemic; the science of food; cutting-edge food technology; architecture, design & food; and food history.
