This week we caught up with owner and founder of The Guest House, Seth O’Donovan. The Guest House is rooted in Southwest Colorado and curates hospitality-forward experiences that connect people to agriculture, fine dining and immersive lodging experiences, while also partnering with other communities that carry a depth of cultural heritage and an emphasis on land stewardship. The Guest House will be holding their next adventure in the remote area of Hesketh Island in Kachemak Bay, Alaska, from mid-August to mid-October of this year, where a team of ruggedly-refined hospitality professionals will be hosting groups of alternating groups of twelve guests over the 7 weeks.

 

Our theme this month is called “The New Age of Agriculture” and we’re wrapping up the month with a bang and talking about coffee, the third most consumed beverage around the world. Here to hash it out with us is Cory Andreen, a coffee business consultant, entrepreneur and serious coffee guru. Listen in on how we discuss what the threats are to the agricultural side of coffee growing and selling, why we should be paying more for this precious commodity and how we can make better choices as consumers when it comes to this seriously delicious beverage we all love – and depend on – so much.

Wie kann eine zukunftsträchtige Landwirtschaft aussehen? Wie können unsere Städte in Zukunft ernährt werden? Und was können wir als Konsumenten tun, um Landwirte in der Realisierung nachhaltiger Visionen zu unterstützen. Das sind die großen Fragen, mit denen wir uns in diesem Monat unter dem großen Thema „New Age of Agriculture“ beschäftigen. Maria Mundry und Rasmus Burger sind junge Landwirte und führen als Familienbetrieb Schwarze Kuh (@ schwarze_kuh) im Brandenburger Havelland, eine Rinderaufzucht mit entsprechender Vermarktung. In dieser Episode klären sie darüber auf, dass konventionell nicht immer schlecht ist, was die Bio-Bewegung mit Nazis zu tun hat und wie der Einsatz von Drohnen unsere Landwirtschaft in Zukunft effizienter machen kann.

Our theme this month is called “The New Age of Agriculture” and this week we’re diving deep with author, architect, academic and Ted Talks presenter Carolyn Steel. Her book Hungry City: How Food Shapes Our Lives and her current work examines how humans have shaped our lands and our cities and how we can build our cities in the future to feed our ever-growing population, symbiotically relying on our local farmlands. Through humor and vast wisdom, Carolyn will no doubt shift the way you view, buy and eat food, for the better.

Today her work tackles diversity and representation in gastronomy spaces, questioning power structure norms in the culinary business sphere. We chat about her goals behind her concepts then and now and what we all need to do to make our food businesses more diverse, self-aware and equal.

In diesem Monat beleuchten wir das Thema „Innovating Kitchen & Work Culture“ aus unterschiedlichen Perspektiven mit Koch Aaron Hasenpusch (@ team_tabula_rasa)& Per Meuling von Berlin Food Stories (@ berlinfoodstories).
