Food events summer 2020
Oxford Food Symposium, 10th July – 2nd August 2020, online, £80
• If you don't have the resources or the time, you can buy and, in some cases download from their library , the proceedings of previous symposiums. I have added a couple to my Google Books myself! You can contribute a small donation for the privilege.
• They also have a podcast section which I look forward to exploring.
Pitt Rivers Museum Survival Cookbook, 9th July 2020
See exhibitions further below.
Listen to key figures in the restaurant industry discuss their current challenges and future opportunities. For example, I listened live to Pol Contreras's ideas about chocolate; Enrique Olvera’s ideas and also talk of his mole sauce; Dan Barber’s idea of the future role of chefs or Paco Morales’ Noor restaurant trajectory (Córdoba).
FineDining Lovers: Turning The Tables
Again, you can listen to people in the restaurant industry talking about their challenges and ideas for survival. I watched live two or three really inspiring talks, including Grant Achatz and Mark Moriarty's.
There’s no shortage of events in this world, you just need to look for them.

Did you know there was a Food Museum in the Netherlands? Well, there is. Don't forget to check it out. I will do too!
But, looking it up to signpost it here, I also found a Disgusting Food Museum in Sweden... Not so sure I want to visit that one!
New European Journal of Food, Drink and Society. Not sure yet if it is free access.
