|Something About Food at Mason and Taylor|
Something About Food is organised by Daniel Tapper, staff writer at Waitrose Kitchen, and his girlfriend Thea Lenarduzzi, food editor of the Times Literary Supplement. Together they've put together an impressive line up for the first in a planned series of food discussions...
Speakers at the first Something About Food include Hanna Tuomisto PhD, the world's foremost researcher on the environmental impact of in vitro meat. AKA growing meat in test tubes. Sounds terrifying, but the potential to lower greenhouse gas emissions if we all scoff lab burgers is huge. Should be a robust discussion.
Also speaking is James Watt, co-founder of cult brewery Brew Dog, who was recently, and controversially, chucked out of CAMRA's Great British Beer Festival. James will be arguing that 'real ale' is an outdated concept and bringing along some of his craft beers.
Being an out and proud coffee nerd, I'm really looking forward to the talk by James Hoffman, founder of Square Mile Coffee and 2007 World Barista Champion. James will be discussing the British coffee scene and what really makes a good cup of joe.
Something About Food will be held at Mason and Taylor, 51-55 Bethnal Green Road, E1 from 7pm on Weds 12th October. Tickets cost £5 in advance here: http://t.co/7nPmW933/£10 on the door.
