MAD Monday | Migration

15 May 2017

Speakers discussed, how centuries of movement of people, of seeds, and of agricultural, culinary, and cultural practices shaped the wealth of tastes and experiences available in our kitchens and restaurants. In an age of movement of people, ideas, climate, and capital across borders, we set to explore the learnings from our changing palate, plates, and kitchens.
