Bite-sized Food Talks


This session will take place on the Food for Thought Stage on Sunday 27th May

Do you ever find yourself wondering how black pudding is made, who benefits from local food awards, or what the impact of Brexit might be on our food system? Then you’ve come to the right place. To celebrate the launch of an exciting new MA in Food Studies at the University of Exeter this autumn, some of the university’s finest food thinkers will be offering up tantalising tasters of the latest food-focused research from the University. Topics include:

· The rising popularity of black pudding in the UK

· How forest gardens are providing new food sources

· The state of hill farming on Dartmoor

· How food awards are shaping regional food economies

· The changing place of food cooperatives in times of austerity

· How remembering foods from the past can repair generational divides

· The implications of Brexit for farming, food and the British countryside

Visit the University of Exeter’s stand any time during the festival to find out more about the MA in Food Studies and the MSc in Food Security and Sustainability, or talk to food researchers from the University.
