Tuesday, May 6th James Ehrlich, the Executive Producer and Director of Hippy Gourmet TV spoke at the prestigious Authors@Google program, at Google's world headquarters in Mountain View, California.
Besides talking about the inspiration for the book, James spoke about the passion of producing public television and what it means to create meaningful, socially responsible media for families of all ages. James also talked about the importance of taking back the name Hippie for all the positive things that the Hippie movement brought to life (such as hybrid cars, solar panels, organic foods, clean water and air legislation and so much more).
James also brought a couple of solar ovens with him, one from SolarOvens.org and the other from the Tulsi group, showing how easy it is to cook just about any kind of recipes with the power of the sun.
Of course James also discussed the importance of Industrial Hemp (as he always does), emphasizing its nutritional properties in addition to its sustainability, and how our country and world can truly benefit from cultivating Hemp.
This particular Authors@Google event was beamed to several other Google campuses around the world and was also filmed for distribution on YouTube
The event also included a tour of Google's world famous kitchens, meeting their Executive and Sous Chefs and learning about how Google sources almost 100% organic, sustainable and seasonal ingredients to feed all of their employees 24 hours a day!
We were also honored to have one of Google's top chefs provide a recipe from our "Hippy Gourmet's Quick and Simple Cookbook for Healthy Eating" (Hachette USA) - a chilled Cucumber Soup - which was delicious. James also gave out samples of Nutiva Hemp Seeds.
Google is an incredible company that actually cares about the health, well-being and growth of each and every one of their employees. Google is also at the absolute forefront of clean-tech integration, installing massive solar arrays, providing electric vehicles, car pool incentives, shuttles, and even free bicycles for people to ride across campus!
Google = Hippy
Peace, Love and Organics!
