Ben Reade, head of culinary research and development at the Nordic Food Lab, recently participated in a TEDX Talk held the University of Macedonia. His inspiring speech in the video below will definitely have you thinking twice about what you eat.
Reade confesses to licking trees and being obsessed with food night and day. He is a compelling speaker focused on how to defeat the industrialized agricultural system with a 'delicious revolution.' What is a delicious revolution? Using your tongue and nose to find amazing foods in your vicinity.
Reade is a graduate of the University of Gastronomic Sciences in Italy and is quite an expert on the function of the tongue. At the Nordic Food Lab, he and his colleagues experiment with foraged and seasonal foods, some of which end up on the menu at Noma, the second best restaurant in the world.
