Joanna Blythman & Oliver Rowe: The Food We Eat
Thu 5 May, 7.30pm

How healthy is our food? In an age of salads washed in chlorine and factory ‘food solutions’, what guarantees are there that what we eat isn’t detrimental to our health, and what positive steps can we take to do something about it? Food writer Joanna Blythman, author of Swallow This and How To Eat, and chef Oliver Rowe, author of Food for All Seasons, debate the issues with Steven Gale.
