Cooking dinner in a bamboo steamer results in healthy, delicious food. It also means only one pot to clean afterwards!

That’s one of the wonderful aspects about studying food is that it can be done from so many different perspectives and it brings together people from so many different departments here on campus.

That’s Peter Todd representing the cognitive science department at Indiana University. He’s combining his personal interest in food with his professional work looking at how we make decisions. He’ll be here to talk about food choice and smart shopping carts.

Soy beans aren’t just for food and feed anymore. Harvest Public Media looks at the many uses for the crop.

And two chicken recipes each cooked in only one pot. Not too many dishes to wash in Chef Daniel Orr’s kitchen today.
