I wrote this post about the Washington Post's Future of Food conference almost three years ago, when I was newly inspired to find a way to affect people in a positive way with healthier cooking and eating beyond this blog. I just reread it today and it made me somewhat sad that despite all my good intentions, for a variety of reasons, I haven't moved far from that place in the ensuing three years. On the positive side, I am now working hard to make something happen.
I'm still as excited and passionate about many aspects of the politics of the food world. Luckily, the momentum in this area is not only still going strong, but has even increased in force. I'll get there.
