Understanding the role that technology played in our 3.4 million-year-old dietary past is essential in learning to rethink food and eat like humans again, asserts Washington College Associate Professor Bill Schindler. Biologically speaking, humans and human nutritional needs remain relatively unchanged over the centuries; yet our cultural needs have seismically shifted and our expectations of taste, smell, texture, and presentation have significantly changed the way we think about food. By fusing lessons from our dietary past with modern culinary techniques, Schindler believes we can create (and thrive with) a food system that is meaningful, accessible, relevant, and delectable!
