Parul Sehgal: An ode to envy | TED Talk | TED.com

31 Dec

Feelings, breeding art – and art, feeding feelings…

…#Fehgal on #Proust – and a chunk of them libraries!

(And yeah, volumes of relative, subjective introspection, to boot…)

“…

Jamie Oliver: Teach every child about food | TED Talk Subtitles and Transcript | TED.com

27 Nov

Plucked this excerpt, as of lately, well… yeah, cooking.

“…

Home. The biggest problem with the home is that used to be the heart of passing on food culture, what made our society. That is not happening anymore. And you know, as we go to work and as life changes, and as life always evolves, we kind of have to look at it holistically — step back for a moment, and re-address the balance.
