The Culinary Institute of America presents Barton Seaver

Barton Seaver, who graduated from the CIA in 2001, returned to his alma mater in May 2011 to speak with students about his mission to restore our relationship with the ocean, the land, and with each other—through dinner. In this interview Seaver reflects back on his time as a CIA student and talks about his new book, what it means to be a National Geographic Fellow, and why he believes that "delicious" is the new environmentalism.
