Food and technology are powerful shapers of our identity. Both tap into places occupied by our psyche and are analogous to imagination and wonder. Food has its practical applications and pays homage to the cultural diversity of our planet. Technology is, at its best, the realization of inventive ideas that solve problems. When the two are combined, the solutions can open new doors we didn’t know existed.
