The London Gastronomy Seminars
Coverage of food too often neglects an understanding of the food itself—what makes it good, and why. We propose a new series of public lectures, the London Gastronomy Seminars. The goal of these seminars is to put the technical back into the public sphere and to make it fun.
We feel that an understanding and command of the principles at work within the food that we eat is a source of pleasure, excitement, and most of all empowerment. Our hope is that those who attend the seminars will return home encouraged to implement what they have seen, and with a bit of creative dissatisfaction that will drive the industry forward. Through better critical understanding we hope to define our own relationship with gastronomy and reject passive consumerism in favour of informed curiosity.
