Off the Menu with Corby Kummer
In a world as connected as ours has become, no event occurs in isolation. And so while radiation clouds from Japan’s nuclear disaster may not be a threat to reach our shores, the effects of the devastating events in Japan will most certainly be felt here. Take fothe aod for example. In January of this year alone, the U.S. exported $17 million in dairy products to Japan. What will happen to demand in the coming weeks and months? And what about Japan’s self-sufficiency in rice? Is it threatened? Does it matter? We discuss that, food safety in our own country and why the future of cooking might just be in the lab rather than the kitchen with our gastronomy guru, food writer Corby Kummer.
