I recently gave a talk for online platform The Garden, as part of its Food For Thought series.

The Garden is a “community for the curious, a place where inquisitive minds can come together to learn from world experts, and each other, and join in conversations about topics that spark their curiosity”. Its online Garden Talks series invites readers to learn and engage with world experts on fascinating topics.

In my talk, I delve through a collection of old cookbooks and explore the clues about history, anthropology, and society secreted within their pages.

You can watch the talk for free online on The Garden’s website. The talk is free to watch, but an account is required.
