  • 12. The new world food culture. “Tell me what you eat, and I’ll tell you who you are,” wrote renowned gastronome Jean Anthelme Brillat- Savarin in 1825. Exploring culture through food will give us a different sight and understand how food shapes us and our culture. What we consume, how we acquire it, who prepares it, who’s at the table, and who eats first is a form of communication that is rich with meaning.mercredi, 16 mars 2011

When youre done cooking your animated meal, your exact cooking directions are transmitted to a local kitchen-business that follows your steps. They cook your meal and load it on a truck that delivers to your neighborhood.mercredi, 16 mars 2011
