TUESDAY OCTOBER 23, 7PM | ROYAL GEOGRAPHICAL SOCIETY
Ever wondered why you like some dishes and can’t stand the taste of others? How molecular gastronomy has developed? Are you interested in food architecture (or have like me no idea what this may be but are at least intrigued)? Always wanted to know who is the super brain (or pervert for that matter) who is growing meat in his laboratory? Not quite sure yet if you should love or hate AA Gill?
What on Earth Are You Eating? – The Secret Life of Food is a live debate featuring a panel of a scientific (we have a PhD and a Professor talking) as well as culinary (AA Gill – do I need to say more?) experts and their take on the most important thing in life.
This promises to be a stimulating evening with intelligent people having fascinating opinions on different aspects of food, and I feel I may agree with some and disagree with others… I will certainly attend, if this event tickles your fancy too, here are the details:
