Cambridge Global Food Security

An Interdisciplinary Research Centre at the University of Cambridge

A discussion of the scientific, social and cultural aspects of culinary taste with experts from the academic sector and the food industry.

The panel will bring together experts from the academic sector and the food industry to shed light on the importance of taste in shaping culinary behaviours and practices across cultures, how agri-food science and technology have contributed to the enhancement or creation of flavours in the past decades, and how these have transformed and globalised our relations to natural and processed foods.

This event is a collaboration between Cambridge Global Food Security IRC and gloknos, the Centre for Global Knowledge Studies.
