June 17, 2013 Meeting
The June meeting of the Experimental Cuisine Collective will take place on Monday, June 17, from 4 to 6 p.m.
Our presenter will be Danielle Gould, founder & CEO of Food+Tech Connect, who will allow us to interrogate the role that technology is playing in our food system. There has never been more demand for sustainable food, but the industry is having trouble scaling. Her talk will look at how technology and open data are leveling the playing field with big food and bringing transparency to the entrenched industry. Danielle will highlight some of the tech startups that are disrupting the way we produce, distribute, sell, cook and consume food. And she will talk about what a hackathon is and how she is using them to rapidly prototype food systems innovation. We’ll also discuss your ideas about how technology can be used to reimagine cooking and dining.
