Barton Seaver is a chef and National Geographic Fellow who has dedicated his career to restoring the relationship we have with our ocean. He believes food is a crucial way for us to connect with the ecosystems, people, and cultures of our world. After graduating with honors from the Culinary Institute of America, a transformative trip to Morocco landed him in the seaside village of Essaouiera, where survival is directly linked to the oceans. His time spent with the locals taught him generations-old fishing methods and shaped his belief that, at its root, sustainability is both an ecological and a humanitarian issue.
Now, after 14 years, 7 restaurants, 4 books, and countless awards, recognitions, and publications, he's still hard at work promoting the strengths and ideals of eating responsibly as the Director of the Healthy and Sustainable Food Program at the Center for Health and the Global Environment, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
