Norman Van Aken shared a link with me this morning that I thought you might enjoy, too. You’ve undoubtedly seen subway or metro maps laid out in a way that is more geometric than geographical. They’re usually associated with the public transportation authorities in other countries.
Well, HartmanSalt, the online division of the Hartman Group, a food and beverage insights company, has published a map of Greater Food Culture in the style of one of those metro cartographs. But instead of train lines, the multicolored routes represent different aspects of food culture, including global, modern and local, and disciplines such as food media and education. Van Aken is a stop on the global line (change at Nobu to connect to the central line heading west to reach Wolfgang Puck). Even more fun, the map is interactive, so run your cursor over the stops to get an explanation of the chef/cook/educator, innovator’s contribution to our Greater Food Culture.
Just click on the map above or the following link to go to the HartmanSalt website.
