reThink Food
The Culinary Institute of America MIT Media Lab

reThink Food will allow you to spend three days fully immersed in an atmosphere of exploration, interrogation, stimulation, and discovery, helped in no small part by its staging in the breathtaking Napa Valley and the CIA’s historic Greystone campus. It is conceived as a unique physical and intellectual space to gather like-minded chefs, scientists, innovators, culinary experts, technologists, and marketers.

You will attend presentations, panels, culinary demonstrations, and sensory tastings led by thought leaders from the food industry, technology world, and academia who will address how, what, and why we cook and eat the way we do today and where we are heading. You may review the program schedule here.
