What does it mean for food to be art? On today's episode of Taste Matters, JBF's Mitchell Davis explored this topic with Robert Valgenti, associate professor of philosophy and director of the College Colloquium at Lebanon Valley College. Listen below as Mitchell and Robert discuss the nature of art, the human experience with food, and the intersections between the two—from our obsession with celebrity chef culture to our individual responsibility as part of the larger food system.
Taste Matters is an exciting radio program dedicated to taste: as a sense, cultural construct, and culinary phenomenon. However much we talk about where our food comes from, how it’s produced, who prepares it, or what sorts of socio-cultural-political implications our food choices and eating behaviors have, taste is fundamental.
