Description

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Is it easy to appreciate and place more value in life's simple pleasures, like.. food? A simple guy cooking simple food with a whole lot of love, Karlis Celms — presents a challenge to chefs and the food community, basically anybody with a mouth who likes to eat. “American – Latvian” Chef Karlis R. Celms acquired his cooking skills at San Francisco’s Le Cordon Bleu college of Culinary Arts. He completed a formal internship at a 2-star Michelin restaurant, and has honed his skills in a wide variety of restaurant environments over his 12 years in professional kitchens. After a self declared industry “burn out” he chose to travel through Europe & explore other fields of interest, only to return to Kitchen work in the country of his father’s ancestry, Latvia. Karlis is constantly striving to create honest, simple & seasonally inspired food “done right”, while finding ways to challenging his diners to step out of their gastronomic “comfort zone”. He currently oversees Cafe Tvaiks, “SpridEats” food truck, & his newest venture “The Rusted Root”. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
