Can a shared love of food transform lives and regenerate communities? This scintillating topic: ‘Coming Together: Can Food be a Force for Change?’ -will be debated as part of the popular Borough Talks; a series of talks connecting foodies with their food heroes. The Borough Talks series seeks to debate the food industry’s biggest issues and are hosted at Borough Market featuring a stellar line –up of influential players from the food world including food stylist and writer Olia Hercules, and writer, journalist and broadcaster Jay Rayner.  As Britain’s most renowned food hub, Borough Market is ideally placed as a host, due to being a place where people have always converged to further cement their connection with food, Keith Davis, Managing Director, explains further:

“As London’s oldest food market, we have always been a place where people come together to connect over food. These talks give us a chance to engage with visitors on a deeper level and discuss the wider topics that impact the food landscape around us. The talks also give people an opportunity to hear from innovators and thought leaders in the industry, up close, in a wonderful, intimate setting.”

The panel for the forthcoming Borough Talks includes: Tom Hunt, acclaimed eco -chef and author of The Natural Cook; Rosie Boycott, Chair of the London Food Board and food advisor to the Mayor of London; Arthur Kay, designer, entrepreneur and founder of Bio-bean; and Roberta Siao, the Brazilian chef who oversees pop-up restaurant and social enterprise Mazi Mas.
