At The SMART Seed we tell stories about food. We use food as a jumping off point into the fascinating realms of history, economics, and society. For example: Black Pepper could just be a ubiquitous spice that is on my kitchen table. Or, black pepper could be the ubiquitous spice that is on my table and is also responsible, in part, for European Imperialism and the reshaping of our world map. In one scenario food could just be what we eat. In the other, it represents our past and who we are.
