In matters of food, Carlo Petrini is one of the most influential thinkers of our time. As founder of the international Slow Food movement, he has been a prominent activist for food justice, a defender of bio-cultural diversity and global campaigner for the right to pleasure in food.|
With additional contributions from Mike Small of the Fife Diet and Denise Walton of Peelham Farm, Carlo Petrini will be reflecting on why we are increasingly disconnected from what we eat, and what we can do to strengthen our relationship with all that nourishes us.
This free public lecture is hosted by the UK's only masters programme in Gastronomy - the interdisciplinary study of food culture and food systems - based at Queen Margaret University.
