Two voices of Organic Farming

Being a student at the CIA (Culinary Institute of America) is a gift in my life for which I'm enormously grateful. It has re-founded my perspectives and my gusto for life. One of the things I've realized is how central to community are media like books, films, TV, social media. That cooking and media are converging probably should not be a big surprise to me but I do find it intriguing.

I have lots of questions and desires. When Rick Bayless travels throughout Mexico, showing cooking artifacts, pointing the camera at the Mexicans cooking on beautiful artisan equipment, I'd like more entry into the people....and to hear the Mexicans "speak for themselves."

I want to reorganize my schedule so that I have more time to read Internet postings about the cooperation between the media-recognized organic farm movement and the "Traditional Native American Farming Association."

I wish I had been able to meet Rachel Carson. She should be given a posthumous award for elevating the English language, melding scientific writing with poetic strength. She is what books were made for.

And finally, I wish that my mole sauce would "sing."
