As in years past, we’ll webcast TEDxManhattan live from New York City on February 16, 2013. Anyone with a computer can watch the talks for free via https://new.livestream.com/tedx/manhattan2013. We’re also encouraging individuals, groups, and organizations to host viewing parties and start conversations with their communities on the issues of their local food systems.
Because TEDxManhattan viewing party hosts will need to provide food for their guests (and individuals will need to feed themselves), our speakers have provided recipes featuring sustainable, seasonal ingredients to inspire viewers to change the way they eat. So keep checking back here for hors d’oeuvres, appetizers, entrees, sides, and desserts!
