Foodprint LA was the fourth in a series of international conversations about food and the city. From obesogenic design to grey water usage, and from taco history to synthetic biology, panelists discussed the past, present, and future of food in LA. The free afternoon program included designers, policy-makers, artists, entrepreneurs, and others.

Our third panel was called Edible Archaeology. We asked Gustavo Arellano, editor of OC Weekly and author of Taco USA: How Mexican Food Conquered America, Willy Blackmore, Los Angeles editor of Tasting Table, Judith Gerber, author of Farming in Torrance and the South Bay, Matt Novak, author of the Paleofuture blog for Smithsonian magazine, and artist Jessica Rath, how today's food culture in Los Angeles has been shaped by social changes, economic fluctuations, and technological innovations throughout the city’s history.
