The food landscape has changed. Food has become a status symbol, a statement of intent; it’s a hashtagging, instagramming, 15-minute-Jamie fetishising culture of modern cuisine. It’s the rise of the ‘foodie’, and it seems to be here to stay. In the second of their ’37 Things You Need to Know About Modern Britain’ talks, BUG and The House of St. Barnabas will be nibbling their way into the meaning behind the rise in our obsession with food, in ‘What your lunch says about you’.
If you want to try and find out how the food you eat defines you, and who or what is having an influence of what goes in your mouth, then join the Soho-based charity on July 16 for an evening of more-ish debate. Among many others, panellists include Brixton cafe owner Rosie Lovell (above), Richard Benson, journalist and former editor of ‘The Face’ and journalist Miranda Sawyer.
