Bringing Cooking Technology into the 21st Century


Though we are well into the 21st century, nearly three billion people in the world still cook in the same way as we did thousands of years ago. How can we work with groups around the world to develop new cooking technologies, and improve the health and livelihoods of those billions? Clean and efficient cookstoves – a low-tech, high-impact solution – can help improve community health, empower women economically, decrease the amount of pollutants in the atmosphere, and increase school enrollment for girls. José Andrés, chef/owner of ThinkFoodGroup and founder of World Central Kitchen, will discuss the interconnectedness of clean cookstove technology with Robert Capps, Editorial Director at WIRED Magazine.
