Ohio Wesleyan was buzzing over the last week, with author Ben Hewitt and world-renowned Nutrition expert Dr. Walter Willett visiting campus to talk about their areas of expertise relative to food as a part of the Bite! series. Videos from both events can be found in the Archived Bite! Lectures section of the website, just in case you missed these great events, or want to re-live them. Enjoy!
Last week was a big one for Bite! as we had three fantastic events. In case you missed either Dr. Abram Kaplan or Avesta Saaty, both have been archived in our Archived Bite! Lectures page. Ben Hewitt’s lecture from Friday should be available verysoon. Hope to see you at our final two events – Dr. Walter Willett on Tuesday November 6th at 3pm, and Dr. Fabio Parasecoli on Wednesday November 13th at 7pm.
For anyone who has ever looked through one of Bryant Terry’s cookbooks, it’s clear that this man likes his music. So much so, in fact, that each recipe comes with a soundtrack that suits the aesthetic of the food and its origins. NPR’s “In Your Ear” series featured Bryant’s take on the mix of music and food in a recent episode, which you can hear (and read) here: http://www.npr.org/2012/10/15/162941066/vegan-chef-turns-to-ethiopian-beats-with-take-out
Well done, NPR, on checking in on our very talented friend.
If you missed Wednesday’s panel discussion about local food here in Ohio, you missed a dandy of an event. But, thanks to our wonderful media folks here at OWU, we have it archived for you to view at your leisure. Jeni Britton-Bauer, Ben Sippel, Warren Taylor, and Michael Jones absolutely lit up the room with their thoughts about local food, and Tricia Wheeler was the ultimate moderator, asking great questions and encouraging our panelists to speak their minds. Check it out below, or in the Archived Bite! Lectures link.
Did you miss Dr. Anjali Bhatia discussing the rise in fast food culture in India and its subsequent impact on youth culture? No worries – you can check it out below, and also in our Archived Bite! Lectures section of the website!
We had the pleasure of hearing about Cuba’s urban garden movement on Wednesday afternoon in Philips Hall, as Dr. Sinan Koont visited OWU and spoke about his work in this area. There are many fascinating things about the movement, not the least of which are the array of factors that needed to be in place for the movement to enjoy the success that it has. In case you missed it, you can watch the lecture in its entirety in our Archived Bite! Lectures section, or below.
If you missed last night’s lecture from Florence Reed, you missed a wonderful description of what is possible when it comes to positive change in lives, communities, and the environment using sustainable agriculture practices. This is the approach that Sustainable Harvest International promotes in its work, and the results have been outstanding. Fortunately, you can watch the lecture in its entirety in our Archived Bite! Lectures section, or below.
It’s official. The Bite! series details are out for all to see with the official press release from the Ohio Wesleyan University office of Communication and Marketing. The release can be read HERE.
Hope to see you at the events!
