What will London’s food landscape look like in 2050? How can we create positive solutions to help build a more sustainable future and healthier people and how will the use of multi-sensorial elements change the gastronomy of the future? How can we empower more sustainable choices in retail spaces and how do we make diversity and the inclusion of unknown ingredients attractive?
These are just a few of the challenging questions that will be addressed by a panel of 10 experts at Project Gastronomía‘s Gastronomy & Multisensory Design 2050 interactive one-day symposium in the UK capital on 19 April 2018.
Tackling the challenges and opportunities of the future of food will be a panel of leading voices in the field, ranging from world-class class chefs and food scientists to designers and philosophers, including Virgilio Martinez (Central, Peru), Juan Carlos Arboleya (BCC), Professor Barry Smith, Jozef Youssef (Kitchen Theory) and Professor Paul Brereton. Members of the public will also be encouraged to join in to maximise the collaborative aim of the day. 70 tickets are available, priced at £275, and can be purchased here.
Emphasis will be given to how multisensory design can create a shift in the future, as well as how creative and positive solutions can build sustainable food systems that are healthier for both people and the planet.
