  • 6 tablespoons tamari
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil

Dr. Cordero and chef Stec present: Environmental Action Thru Eating - Best Bang for the Buck This presentation looks at the new economy through the eyes of our food system. Rather than expanding control and diminishing variations, this emerging and new food economy is about expanding variety and building smaller, yet efficient regional food systems. When healthy food systems model a "full circle food cycle," or a "cradle to cradle" system that builds upon the interconnections and dependencies of communities and businesses to ecology; they all thrive. In this talk, chef Laura Stec shares research on these topics from her new book: Cool Cuisine - Taking the Bite Out of Global Warming. Co-author and atmospheric scientist Dr. Eugene Cordero presents current research on the energy efficiency of our food system.
