Proposition 37 is a hot button issue on this year’s California ballot. The bill would require the labeling of all genetically engineered foods or “gmos” on food packaging. LA Times science reporter Rosie Mestel weighs the pros and cons of both sides of Prop 37 and New York Times writer Mark Bittman outlines his ideal food label which would require more than just a label for gmos. Professor Per Pinstrup-Andersen suggests that the development of genetically engineered seeds could help end world hunger and activist Vandana Shiva lays out her reasoning for fighting against seed-patents. Jonathan Gold reviews the latest manifestation of cult favorite Starry Kitchen. Russ Parsons recalls his agritourism trip through Hawaii and Hawaiian chef Sam Choy discusses one of the islands’ signatures dishes – poke. At the market Laura Avery talks to farmer Nate Petiso about his winter greens and chef and restaurateur Akasha Richmond explains how to cook them. Plus, Independent Producer Gideon Brower offers us a special “mini-market report” from 7-11.
