Our appetites consume us. Appetite has been the driving force for human culture, especially when it comes to food. Appetite fuels ambition. Appetite drives our economy. Appetite is life. At our recent JBF Food Conference, our executive vice president Mitchell Davis moderated a lively conversation about cultural cravings with author and New Yorker journalist Adam Gopnik and philosophy professor Robert Valgenti. Watch the video of the discussion above.
