Los Altos History Museum will hold a conversation with a panel of experts about making food choices that can positively affect ongoing social concerns. Entitled “Eating Your Values,” the panel takes place Thursday, August 15 at 7 pm in the Orchard Room at Los Altos Library.
The evening begins with an informal reception at the Museum at 6:30 pm, with appetizers provided by Epicurean Group. Registration for both is free.
The Museum’s current exhibition, “Silicon Valley Eats: A Taste for Innovation,” looks at the history of food, from the region’s agricultural roots to today’s cutting-edge sustainability efforts. Panel members go beyond the plate, raising questions about the quality of fruits and vegetables, the sustainability of the farming methods, the place of animals in the web of life and the importance of gathering people together at the table.
Panelists for the Evening Include:
- Jesse Ziff Cool, owner of Jesse Cool Restaurants, author of seven cookbooks and a pioneer in the movement for organic, seasonal, local food.
- Sibella Kraus, founder of SAGE (Sustainable Agriculture Education), which cultivates urban-edge places where farming and local food culture can thrive.
- Blair Thompson, Hidden Villa’s Animal Husbandry Manager who sees regenerative agricultural practices as an essential element in the future of food.
- Peter Ruddock, a Slow Food California board president and Coordinator of the California Food Policy Council
