Sustain’s Deputy Chief Exec Ben Reynolds will be joined by award winning author and R4 Food Programme legend Dan Saladino and guests to explore themes from his book Eating to Extinction at this year’s Latitude Festival, on 24 July.
The session will close the Theatre of Food tent on Sunday 24 July, 5pm, and bring together producers playing their passionate part in reviving rare strains of crop whose cultivation has fallen by the way in the march of the homogenous industrialised food system of recent decades. This session will delve into how the diversity of these underloved cultivars may offer solutions to the future sustainability and security of our food, whilst tasting good too.
Forgotten foods: stories of Britain's lost food and how to revive them.
Starting between 4-5pm, Sunday 24th July
Hosted by Ben Reynolds, from Sustain in conversation with Dan Saladino, R4 Food Programme and author of the award winning Eating to Extinction, Wing Mon, Head baker of Landrace bakery, Josiah Meldrum, co-founder of Hodmedod and Tom Oliver, founder of Oliver’s Cider and Perry.
