This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Lunchtime discussion on Zoom as part of the Borough Talks series.

2020 brought about huge changes in how we get and consume our food. As we now begin to emerge from the pandemic, join the panel as they discuss the possible enduring impact of these changes and what - for better or worse - they mean for our food future.

Topics will include where and how we get our food shopping, the role of supermarkets and local markets, the impact on both home-cooking and dining-out culture and what it all means for the planet, our pockets and our wellbeing.

The panel will be made up of Carolyn Steel, whose work on food and cities is world-renowned; psychologist (and Bake Off finalist) Kimberley Wilson who is well placed to consider the emotional and mental health impact of the pandemic on our food culture; and best-selling food-writer Anna Jones whose cooking encourages all of us to take a more sustainable approach to food.

Hosted by Angela Clutton.
