Yesterday, I had the privilege of participating in a panel discussion on food transparency hosted by the US Farmers and Ranchers Alliance in Chicago. The panel was hosted by Ellie Krieger, the "celebrity chef" and host of Food Network's Healthy Appetite, and New York Times best-selling cookbook author. The panel included the head chef from Marriott, a VP from the Food Marketing Institute, a former deputy secretary of the USDA, former CEO of Cascadian farms, three "conventional" farmers, one organic farmer, and myself. I learned a lot from the discussion with these folks at dinner the night before and during the discussion itself. I suspect you will too.
