Ethical eating can be a hedonistic pleasure and good for you and the planet at the same time

The On Being show hosted by Krista Tippett entitled "Driven By Flavor" with Chef Dan Barber is well worth listening to.

Krista Tippett, host:

"Dan Barber is a celebrated young chef — but his passionate ethics and intellect have made him much more than that. He's out to restore food to its rightful place vis-à-vis our bodies, our ecologies, and our economies. And he would do this by resurrecting our natural insistence on flavor."

Unitarian Universalists have taken a special interest in ethical eating since they passed a resolution to adopt this topic as a CSAI (Congregational Study Action Issue).

At The Brockport Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, Ethical Eating, was a topic for one of our Second Sunday discussion groups, and Michael Pollan's book, In Defense of Food: An eater's manifesto, was the book of the month for our BUUF book discussion group in November, 2009.

Chef Dan Barber has some very interesting ideas which are very far ranging and well worth considering. I highly recommend the show to you. You can access it by clicking here.

Dan Barber takes the UU 7 principle of the interdependent web very seriously in thought and in practice.

Ethical Eating: Food and Environmental Justice

Today I am starting a new series of posts on the various UUA's statement of conscious (SOC). This series is on Ethical Eating: Food and Environmental Justice.

Video lasts 19:02

Chef Dan Barber squares off with a dilemma facing many chefs today: how to keep fish on the menu. With impeccable research and deadpan humor, he chronicles his pursuit of a sustainable fish he could love, and the foodie's honeymoon he's enjoyed since discovering an outrageously delicious fish raised using a revolutionary farming method in Spain.

This is post #1 in a series on the SOC on Ethical Eating.
