Heirloom Meals: Savoring Yesterday's Traditions Today

Marion Nestle

Would you believe that a person who is among the top 7 most powerful foodies according to Michael Pollan admits to having no real food memories from her childhood other than summer camp in Vermont?  But it was an extraordinary memory and has influenced her to this day. Was it the fresh-picked green beans, still warm from the summer sun? The wild berries?  

Fast forward to adult life and Marion Nestle is, bar none, at the top of the food movement chain!  What I loved about Marion was her optimism.  She's been focused on food studies since 1996 and has seen great strides in the food movement. It's really all about values - what kind of food do we want to feed out families?  So vote with you fork and live sustainably by putting back what you take out.  Seems simple, right - then do it!!  Thank you Marion for all that you do!!
