food of the future
To have the TEDx stage for 18 minutes is a privilege and an honor. To use this global platform to tell the story of my family’s past, to introduce my ancestors who have not been spoken of or seen in over 70 years to a worldwide audience that they could never have imagined and to combine all of this with my love of the infinite possibilities of the future and what we must each do to allow these opportunities into our lives is a gift that I will cherish forever – thank you!!
I would love you to watch it, like it and leave a comment to let me know what you see ahead and what excess baggage you’re leaving behind to make room for the future and an enormous thank you to the 1,000+ people that watched it within the first 24 hours of it being put up on YouTube.
Teff, spelt and kamut started Harvey Deegan, of Perth radio’s 6PR, and I off this week as we meandered our way through the top 10 foods of the future, which includes the return of ancient grains, gluten-free beer, vegan meals, organic alcohol, African and Middle Eastern cuisines, new cuts of meats, gluten-free meals and Quinoa. Harvey even goes so far as to look up teff and we set the listeners a challenge to find a recipe using it.
News of the week also included 120,000 iPad’s being pre-ordered on the first day they were on offer; OnLive announcing its set to take on the traditional games industry by bypassing the need to buy consoles by providing live streaming of games that can be played on either your PC or television. We then rounded off our weekly chat with a look at some interesting mobile device apps.
