Celebrity Chefs, Past and Present

by Paul Freedman

There’ve always been celebrity chefs whose skill and cre­ativ­ity made them famous. But the pas­sage of time usu­ally means we know lit­tle more about them than their names. From ancient Greece and Rome there’s only one cook­book that sur­vives in full, that attrib­uted to the Roman cook Apicius, which dates actu­ally from the end of the Roman Empire.

Does the Apple Fall Very Far from the Tree?

by Madhur Jaffrey

What is cook­ing? We are all born into cer­tain cul­tures. And the cul­ture is like a mother. We run away, we exper­i­ment. We are mod­ern peo­ple, we try and find new things, we want to find the best lob­ster, the best cray­fish. We want to cook it in amaz­ing ways with some­thing we’ve just for­aged from the forest.

The Conversation #43 — Roberta Francis

by Neil Prendergast, Micah Saul, Roberta Francis, Aengus Anderson

Generally peo­ple don’t see the skir­mishes that are always always always going on in the back­ground to pre­serve where we are now in terms of laws against sex dis­crim­i­na­tion or laws that would pro­mote sex equal­ity. But com­pared to where we were when the ERA came out of Congress in 1972, we are very much bet­ter off in terms of equal­ity of rights being guar­an­teed by the law, because so many laws that did dis­crim­i­nate on their face are off the books as a result of the strug­gle for the Equal Rights Amendment.

Imaging the Health of Our Planet

by Gabrielle Thomas

The inter­est­ing thing is not just fig­ur­ing out what one plant needs, but doing it on the scale of a mil­lion plants. This is where imag­ing can help. Capturing the detail, but from a dis­tance. Some farm­ers already used drones or other air­craft to do just that. But these are not tools avail­able to all. I want to ask what if pre­ci­sion agri­cul­ture could be a ser­vice acces­si­ble to any­one on the planet?

Who and What Will Get to Think the Future?

by Ted Chiang, Ed Finn

There’s already a kind of cog­ni­tive invest­ment that we make, you know. At a cer­tain point, you have years of your per­sonal his­tory liv­ing in somebody’s cloud. And that goes beyond merely being a mem­ory bank, it’s also a cog­ni­tive bank in some way.

Mapping the Intricacies of Evolving Food Systems

by Graham MacDonald

In many coun­tries, the very abil­ity to eat a food like avo­cado is a direct ben­e­fit of inter­na­tional trade. We are eat­ing on an inter­con­nected planet. Food trade now shapes land use world­wide and is reshap­ing the food sup­plies of many nations.

Cities form a vast global net­work con­nected by flows of energy, food, infor­ma­tion. This global net­work is the chal­lenge of the 21st cen­tury. How do we make more sus­tain­able cities, with smaller eco­log­i­cal foot­prints and more equi­table human well­be­ing?

by Kevin Esvelt, Megan Palmer, Ryan Phelan, George Church

When it comes to a field as fast-moving and as high of stakes as genetic engi­neer­ing, how do we pro­ceed wisely? How do we bal­ance our own wild­ness and civil­ity as we develop increas­ingly pow­er­ful ways to inter­act with the liv­ing world?
