Whether reaching hundreds to thousands of people through a conference or millions through you-tube TED has allowed new ideas to spread throughout the population. One idea TED has featured many times with different topics is our food, whether it be a talk for foodies, how we eat our food or how we source our food.
All these have helped spur the growth or help add traction to the local food movement. These TED food movement talks will open your mind and make you think twice about how and what you eat.
