Sara Kate Gillingham-Ryan, editor of “The Kitchn” blog, writes about this food talk:
When I headed uptown to the 92nd Street Y last night to hear Michael Pollan, Dan Barber and Joan Dye Gussow speak to Hedonistic, Healthy And Green: Can We Have It All?, I expected to see a few hundred fellow urban hippies and had some vague words of praise in mind for each of them for the post-lecture signing. Silly me.
Instead I encountered a throng of close to one thousand people, elbowing each other, cutting the line for the box office, and jittering with near Beatle-mania pre-show excitement. And I liked it.

The event was pretty much a big love-fest among the participants, moderator, and audience members. (It seems we’d all drunk the Kool-Aid--or, rather, the local, organic, homemade carrot juice--about choosing real food grown and raised by real farmers instead of processed foods with origins on factory farms).
But don’t take their word for it, see for yourself in the video clip above when the panelists talk about the “Western diet” and other eating habits and philosophies.
