I have a confession to make. My husband loves Kraft cheese slices and despite my better judgment, I sometimes concede and buy for him. You can’t win every battle (but I do bury the so-called cheese at the bottom of the cart, embarrassed by the purchase).
Most days, we do our best to eat smart. We cook from scratch often, eat out from chefs/farmers we know, eat in season, avoid processed garbage, etc. We all know the drill by now. But those darn cheese slices – that’s one area I haven’t been able to get Jamie to throw in the towel. Until he heard from a much more credible source that his beloved slices actually contain NO REAL CHEESE.
We received tickets to the second annual TEDxCLE event this year, and once again, were blown away by the passion, enthusiasm and visionary minds we listened to. And no surprise here, my favorite discussion was by none other than chef Jonathon Sawyer. Instead of me trying to capture his thoughts and challenges to all of us, take a few minutes and listen for yourself. You’ll be glad you did.
And do yourself another favor, make sure you attend TEDxCLE next year. Eric and Hallie do an amazing job organizing this event. There’s something for everyone – it’s most definitely an afternoon well spent that will stick with you, and hopefully, inspire you.
