How to Cut an Onion

How to Cut an Onion: Cynthia Lair at TEDxRainier – YouTube.

Cynthia Lair is a nutrition and cooking teacher in Seattle, WA. Last fall she was invited to a TEDx conference, where she gave a talk about what happens when we give our full attention to cooking. In it she tells the story of how she taught her students to add mindfulness and love to the polenta they were stirring. I love one students comment on the end of the semester evaluation at 2:42:

“i loved the integration of emotion & spirit into food and cooking”

The talk is called “How to Cut an Onion.
