Future of Food Meet-Up

Fernando Music speaking at the Future of Food with Y+30

Y+30 is a meet-up group that was created to provide a forum for discussing how our actions and developments today will affect our future – specifically 30 years out.  Y+30 has looked at a whole range of topics and created quite a following.  When the very talented Mollie Chen asked me to participate in their food-themed event, I couldn’t have been more excited and immediately said yes.

The reason for this over the top enthusiasm? The other panelists that evening were: Executive Chef, Michael Anthony of Gramercy Tavern; founder of Anson Mills, Glenn Roberts; and co-founder of Food52, Amanda Hesser. That’s a pretty good group.  There were more than 250 people in the audience at the Tribeca outpost of the 92nd Street Y and they asked some great questions. The themes were deeply rooted in today’s food politics, which hopefully can be resolved before we get to the Y+30 version of tomorrow…
