How Hedonism Can Change Our Food System
You might be surprised to learn that there is a major monopoly when it comes to seeds. Globally, 68% of seeds are in the hands of just three companies. This has major implications for our food system at every level. In this mini-episode Dr. Hyman talks with Dan Barber about how seeds are the blueprint for better food, better soil, and a better food system. Dan explains why seeds are the foundation for a new food system and why making food taste great opens the doorway for healthier people and a healthier planet.
Dan Barber is the chef and co-owner of Blue Hill and Blue Hill at Stone Barns and the author of The Third Plate. He also co-founded Row 7 Seed Company, a seed company bringing together chefs and plant breeders in the development of new varieties of vegetables and grains. Dan has received multiple James Beard awards including Best Chef: New York City (2006) and the country’s Outstanding Chef (2009).
