Food quality, why we eat the way we do, industrial food practices, and consumption habits will be explored by the acclaimed British food writer, Bee Wilson, in a public talk at NUI Galway next week.
Wilson, author of five books on food-related subjects, including the recent The Way We Eat Now: Strategies for Eating in a World of Change, will be in conversation with The Irish Times' Catherine Cleary, at the Galway International Arts Festival’s Autumn First Thought Talks at 2.30pm on Saturday October 12 at NUI Galway’s Aula Maxima.
The talk will explore what we should we eat, how we eat, how we learn to eat, and the evolving nature of our relationship with food. "We are now producing and consuming more food than ever, and yet our modern diet is killing us. How can we solve this bittersweet dilemma?" she has said.
Wilson writes for The Wall Street Journal and The Guardian. She is also the chair of the Oxford Symposium on Food and Cookery and is a former BBC Radio Food Writer of the Year. Tickets are €12/€0 via www.giaf.ie
