While Elon Musk is building sexy green cars and space rockets, his brother Kimbal is also saving the world - with sustainable food. Three weeks ago I landed with a gaggle of girls at The Kitchen Next Door in Boulder, Colorado. Having spent the majority of my childhood in South Africa, it was a proud moment to learn the restaurant is owned by one of the Musk brothers - those Musk brothers - also from South Africa. The restaurant had recently posted a photograph on their Facebook page of a massive pile of locally-grown kale. I'm guessing it was probably this kale - salted, turned into crispy chips and Incredible Hulk green - that Luke served, plate after wonderful plate, to me and my friends. Despite being brimful of wine at the time, I could taste a deeper story.
