Post-Sabbatical in San Antonio
I begin 2010 in San Antonio at the Culinary Institute of America. My plan is to develop a series of videos and digital media that explores Latin American and European cuisine, an encounter that has been in the making for 500 years. Taste and smell as an aesthetic has lead to what? The transporting of so-called New World products to Europe and now the production of food by media conglomerates has resulted in what? The incipient idea is to explore historical events and current issues by actually cooking and sharing the cooking experience.
