Biography
Since its debut in early 2002, Food and Drink has profiled a wide range of leading companies in the food and drink industry, including divisions of McDonalds, Compass Group and White Hen Pantry. In addition, it has published news and expert advice about such vital topics as food safety and employee training.

"This industry is dynamic and exciting, and it’s been fun to cover its most important trends for the past half-decade," said Senior Food Editor Erica Burke. In the March/April 2007 issue of Food and Drink, Burke explored the growing trend of restaurants sourcing locally grown food. "That's the sort of editorial that keeps this magazine exciting," Burke said, "and we look forward to covering other developments in the next five years."

Neither are new positions--Scott Hume was the ME before he was Exec ME, then Exec Editor and then Editor in Chief. The ME role has been open since Scott moved up. Now Scott is moving out and both roles are open...

Either will report to Pat Dailey, the publisher and editorial director.

Erica,

I would love to pick your brain a bit - I am a rep for Gordon Food Service in the metro Chicago area, and have a passion for raising my customers' games. I would love to get some insights from you on where the industry is going. Let me know if you would be interested in helping me out

Hi there--

Yours doesn't sound too bad either... I'm out in Oak Brook, much to my dismay. The commute is not ideal, as I live in Lincoln Park.

Actually, we use very few freelancers--there are just a few of us on staff, but we do the bulk of the writing... How about you?

Erica -

I saw that you are writing a story about food and professional social networks. I know someone involved in this industry who would be a great person to talk with.
Please contact me to discuss.

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: James Patten: The best computer interface? Maybe ... your hands - James Patten (2013)

"The computer is an incredibly powerful means of creative expression," says designer and TED Fellow James Patten. But right now, we interact with computers, mainly, by typing and tapping. In this nifty talk and demo, Patten imagines a more visceral, physical way to bring your thoughts and ideas to life in the digital world, taking the computer interface off the screen and putting it into your hands.

TED: Hamish Jolly: A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) - Hamish Jolly (2013)

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?
