Here's a little sneak peek of what you can expect from PICKLES, our new video magazine exploring the ideas and people shaping the future of food!
"I feel responsible for inspiring other people to live sustainably. It is a responsibility we all share as the world's citizen."
"It's an unharmful act of rebellion against large corporations which do not care enough about waste."
"Food is the foundation of good strong communities; it’s both our history and our future."
"We have to stop giving each other such a hard time and start celebrating the small wins; the changes in our daily lives that add up to a lot."
"We have such an abundant landscape with this superior food source at our finger tips that is unknown to most."
"If we don’t get good product, its never going to be turned into a good dish."
"All trends are really just history repeating itself. No one can really reinvent the wheel anymore, just add to it."
"It's about understanding the whole loop of food."
"Enough obsessing over food and just do...something!"
