Laura Stec, San Francisco Bay Area Chef,
and Dr. Eugene Cordero, Professor of Meteorology,

speaking on

 “Cool Cuisine –  Taking the Bite
out of Global Warming”
Laura Stec and Dr. Eugene Cordero, two Bay Area experts and authors of “Cool Cuisine - Taking the Bite Out of Global Warming” combine seemingly disparate professions to present the scientific, economic, and gastronomic angles of our individual and collective diets. According to Chef Stec, global warming - as alarming as it is - could be the best thing to happen to the culinary world in a long time. Choosing local, fresh food infuses you, as well as your local economy, with vitality. And when Dr. Cordero does the numbers, we see that changing one’s diet can reduce carbon emissions as effectively as buying a new fuel-efficient car.
Bring a friend, bring your lunch, take a bite: out of global warming!
Laura Stec is a San Francisco Bay Area chef and environmental advocate
