Sous Vide in the City: How Digital Dining Feeds Us
Americans seem just as obsessed with food as they are technology, but how is our near constant state of connectivity influencing what chefs put on the menu? How is our geographical density and propensity for moving from one urban area to another changing our expectations for eating out and even going to the grocery store? The Food Network used to have a monopoly on food-as-entertainment, but now the most interesting developments in the food world are either at our fingertips on Facebook/Instagram/Twitter or in some pop-up restaurant in a warehouse. How can chefs and food entrepreneurs keep up with customers' expectations, and how can new food businesses stand out in an increasingly competitive industry?
