For more than a decade Dan Barber has been among the most influential chefs working at the intersection of ecology and gastronomy. Last Monday, with a veritable United Nations Security Council of the world’s top chefs as his allies, he exhorted cooks to think not just about how and where their food is grown, but about what forces are influencing the very DNA of our ingredients.

The theme for this year’s TEDx Manhattan conference, “Changing the Way We Eat,” couldn’t be dearer to our hearts: to explore the food system as we shift to a more sustainable way of eating and farming.
