the reshaping of everyday experience in relation to global forces transforming our food system.

There are two discussion and I already upload the reading for each discussion. each discussion 2 paragraph.
DISCUSSION 1 :
Seremetakis talks about the reshaping of everyday experience in relation to global forces transforming our food system. How can we see this reflected in the Highland Ecuadorian community studied by Weismantel?
How can we see this in our own context in terms of the transformation of food into a simulacrum of food (in which food is a neutral substrate in which things like taste and texture are engineered rather than emerging from the food itself) as discussed by Haden?
Don’t forget to bring in a quote from one of the readings as a jumping off point for your discussion.
DISCUSSION 2 :
Lardo became the poster child of slow food. How did the meanings of this food change over time? What kind of politics are slow? Are there ways we can adapt the politics of slowness to our current circumstances?
