What did Neanderthals eat? Why did our ancestors keep their chickens and cows around their homes? Why is in Hinduism cow considered a holy creature, while in the US it's a daily dish? What shall we eat in 300 years and what to astronauts have for Christmas dinner?
We are what we eat. For humans, food serves a much bigger purpose than keeping your digestion going. In this inspirational talk founder of Clandestino Kitchen J.D'Costa explores, how the Food Culture has been changing throughout the centuries, and how it has changed our civilization.
During the talk, you will learn the following five surprising things about food:
1. What is Food Culture and why it's one of the main pillars of civilization? Without it, we'd probably be extinguished as species.
2. The past and present of Food Culture: The Neanderthals and their "supermarket" vs the businessman's shopping behaviour
3. Food industry: cow milk and the impact of industrialization on society.
Did you know that it was considered "normal" to have your cow & chicken around your home? Why did the city head think it'd be a good idea to get rid of them? How did cow milk change how we live today?
4. Health & Holistic aspects of Food Culture.
Why in Hinduism the cow is a holy creature, while Americans treat it as their daily food.
5. Where does it go? The future of food(culture).
What do astronauts eat on their missions on special days like Christmas?
