Asked to recommend a book, Homaro Cantu, who will be participating in the 2007 ideaFestival this September, suggested "From Beirut to Jerusalem" by Thomas Friedman. If you're interested in learning more about Homaro Cantu, check out Fast Company's Weird Science, a piece I referenced last year.
When your pastry chef is an ink jet, you're making some interesting food.
Over the next several weeks I'll periodically blog recommended books from ideaFestival speakers, so stay tuned. A complete list of books written by those individuals may be located on the right side of the blog.
