Video Friday: José Andrés at Harvard
José Andrés, the internationally renown Chef, discussed avant garde food at Harvard this week and we are very lucky to bring you this exclusive snippet of the lecture. Here he is passionately, humorously and entertainingly discussing the absolute breakthrough of gelification and spherification in modern, techcno-emotional cooking. Chef Andrés spoke for two hours, non-stop, about the history of food science from ancient Egypt to the work he is doing at this minute bringing solar stoves to Haiti. It was clearly not understood by all but, for me, an absolutely thrilling view of how food weaves everyone in the world together and an insightful challenge for people to open their minds.
He also gave us a Tweet shout out!! Thanks Chef.
