1. As part of my thesis research on genetic engineering, I interviewed the Executive Director of the Center for Food Safety, Andrew Kimbrell, in 2010. This excerpt from the interview explains one of the many reasons why I'm so excited to grow my own non-GMO corn this summer. This video accompanies an article and recipe for GMO-free corn chowder in the Summer 2012 issue of Edible Toronto magazine. You can read the article and get the recipe here: edibletoronto.com
