Anthony Bourdain and Danny Bowien
Thursday, Oct. 5, 2017
Join award–winning author, TV host, producer and former chef, Anthony Bourdain, and James–Beard winning chef and Co–Founder of Mission Chinese, Danny Bowien, as they discuss one of the most pressing issues of our time: global food waste. "WASTED! The Story of Food Waste" is a feature–length documentary that will change how people buy, cook and eat food. Every year, 1.3 billion tons of food is thrown out. That’s $218 billion worth of food produced for human consumption that never gets eaten. With one–third of the world’s food being thrown away even before it reaches the plate, it’s time to shed new light on what is food and what is garbage. Join Kim Severson, a Southern–based correspondent for The Times who covers the nation’s food culture, in conversation with Bourdain and Bowien as they embark on a food revolution. This event is presented in collaboration with The New School Food Studies Program.
