I don’t think I could have said it any better.
“We can’t live without carbohydrates, proteins, fat. It’s that simple. And yet food can be as meaningful and controversial as any form of art. The slippery sweet tang of spaghetti with squid ink may be exotic or nauseating to you. For me it’s the taste of childhood summers. Food is a deeply personal yet quintessentially social affair. You are what you eat, they say, and what we eat, like who we are, has to do with where we come from, where we live and with whom, and who we aspire to be.
Like food, leadership can be comforting, delightful, surprising, revolting. Like food, it is fuel, glue, and emblem of a community — be it a family, a nation, or a corporation. It energizes, brings us together, and represents us. Like food, leadership has a timeless essence, comes in countless forms, and fulfills basic needs.”
