The common thread that brings us together is our appetite, whether we dig, grow, cook, eat or write, we feed ourselves and others. Our appetite is not just a survival instinct, but a curious and voracious desire to know more about our food — the culture and the people that touch it, ecosystems that nurture it, from the seed to our mouths and back again.
