TEDx Battenkill: Two Speakers and a Localvore Lunch
On Saturday, September 13, experience TEDxBattenkill, an independently organized TED event featuring two speakers and a locavore lunch and reception where you can meet the speakers, discuss, debate and be inspired!
Joshua Cogan is an Emmy Award-winning photographer and anthropologist whose work has taken him to 40 countries and five continents. His talk, ‘Things We Forgot,’ illustrates the meaning and importance of cultural diversity and the craft and ritual traditions that make us unique.
As the vice president of international sales and marketing at Penguin Publishing, Valentina Rice has traveled the world, taking advantage of opportunities to explore culinary delights on nearly every continent. Inspired by her first passion, Italian food, Valentina founded Many Kitchens, a curated online marketplace for artisanal food products. Her TEDx-talk, ‘Why Competition is So Last Century’ illustrates why the combined influence of this community is so much more than the sum of its parts.
Ticket-holders will enjoy the first annual Local Chef Locavore Potluck Lunch, celebrating local and regional chefs, restaurants and food producers who will offer a healthy and delicious lunch. Some chefs will even be on site. Lunch begins with a Vermont cheese station and wine and beer tasting, followed by menu items from Mother Myrick’s Confectionery, TED Manchester, the Dorset Inn, CCC Bakery, Northshire Brewery, the Barrows House, Garden Arts Fresh Market, Bistro Henry, Crowley Cheese, Jasper Hill Farms, Taylor Farm, Grafton Village and Farrell Distributing.
