Borough Talks

Food and travel

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

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

Food has the power to offer a unique insight into community and culture. One of the joys of international travel is discovering a region through its food - not just for the pleasure of eating like a local but for what doing that tells you about people, place and time. After a year of little if any travel for leisure (and perhaps more travel uncertainty ahead too) the panel will be discussing how the discovery of the foods of a nation impact upon our cultural understanding of it - and in turn, how increasing or decreasing international tourism can impact upon a region's culinary landscape.

Join Russell Norman, founder of Polpo restaurant group, who fell in love with Venice and has spent years using the food of that city to communicate a greater understanding of its history and culture and Yasmin Khan, whose recently published Ripe Figs is typical of her immersive work in food and travel.

Hosted by Angela Clutton.
