Guy Singh-Watson - Orlando Murrin

Food and Why We Need to Rethink What’s on Our Plates

Venue: Public Hall

16 September 2022 2:00 pm

Asparagus in December. Strawberries in February. As consumers we demand full shelves and plenty of choice. But at what cost? How best to tackle the thorny issue of food miles and food waste? We bring together two (Devon based) campaigners for whom the story behind the food on our plates is never more pressing. Guy Singh-Watson is the founder and creator of Riverford, the hugely successful organic farm and UK-wide organic vegetable box delivery company. Orlando Murrin was projected into the culinary limelight by MasterChef in 1992. He was editor of the BBC Good Food magazine for six years and now writes a column for Waitrose Weekend, presents the BBC Good Food Podcast with Tom Kerridge and since 2019 he has been President of the Guild of Food Writers. His latest recipe books, Two’s Company and Two’s Company Simple, aim to reduce food waste. Talking to Tim Hubbard
