Foodprint LA Dec 9

If you're foodie this is the tope event you want to got to. It's not a buffet, but a total explsoion of cusine knowledge and the understanding of the variety of food in LA.
On Sunday, December 9, 2012, from 12:30 to 5:00 p.m., the Foodprint Project will host Foodprint LA, the fourth in its international event series. Co-founded by Sarah Rich and Nicola Twilley in 2010, the Foodprint Project is an ongoing exploration of the ways food and cities give shape to one another.
Here's my favorite parts of the 4 different discusions going on including Geoff Manaugh and Jonathan Gold coming. A discussion with how sci-fi movies predicted some current dishes.
"Geoff Manaugh of BLDGBLOG will kick off the day at 12:30 p.m. in LACMA’s Brown Auditorium with a conversation between Paula Daniels, Mayor Villaraigosa’s Senior Adviser on Food Policy and Special Water Projects, Hadley Arnold, co-director of the Arid Lands Institute, journalist Nate Berg, RAND researcher Dr. Deborah Cohen, and urban investment expert Rudy Espinoza."

"To that end, I’ll be joined by legendary food critic Jonathan Gold, civic media strategist and participatory mapper Benjamin Stokes, Mary Lee of social equity research and action institute PolicyLink, and Teague Weybright, current board president of the Los Angeles Community Garden Council."

"Katie Robbins, to accompany her article exploring the mysterious pairing.
Judith Gerber, better known as “LA Farm Girl,” Willy Blackmore, the Los Angeles editor of Tasting Table, Matt Novak of Paleofuture, artist Jessica Rath, and taco historian Gustavo Arellano will help Sarah Rich uncover overlooked traces and contemporary revivals of Los Angeles’ agricultural past, explore some of the ways that sci-fi movies of the past have imagined the food of the future, and even examine backyard fruit trees as a bridge to the history of human apple design and preservation."
