Literally Jammy

IE University Law Professor Soledad Atienza has two passions – making marmalades and jams, and reading long books. Finding out how she combines these two passions is not only entertaining, it also fires the imagination, as well as being very instructive!!!

Prof. Atienza is just awesome to be around because she’s one of those people who makes your life easier without making a big deal of it and without wanting anything in return. Not quite what you’d expect of a lawyer, or of most people for that matter.

In this video she reveals that there is life beyond the law, no matter how important law is for everyone’s lives. Enjoy!!!

The Cook

One of my all-time favorite films is The Cook, The Thief, His Wife, and Her Lover by Peter Greenaway. It’s a great story and the cinematography is excellent. I would’ve loved to have been able to render my own small homage to this film, but unfortunately there are no thieves I can think of around here to work into the script. The cook only won´t do!!!

Joking aside, I’m delighted to say that what I do have is an excellent cook, namely Leadership Professor Balvinder Powar. He is not only capable of masterfully mixing ingredients to create a delicious dish out of almost nothing, but also of using cooking as a metaphor to talk about leadership, Gandhi and life in general.

I enjoyed listening to Prof. Powar as much as I enjoyed tasting the dish he prepared during the shoot. I just love Indian food…

P.S. If you get the chance, try the Indian food at Tandoori Station, where we shot this video. You’ll like it, believe me.
