How can food itself speak to us? Join this live virtual panel discussion, in which three chefs each present a plate of homecooked food they have prepared and use this to help us think more deeply and broadly about the food we eat, share, choose, prefer and celebrate. Journalist, Writer, and Food Activist, Ishay Govender will be joined by noted chefs Mokgadi Itsweng, Khanya Mzongwana and Jane Nshuti to talk about the ways food connects us with each other, with our heritage, our land, beliefs and ideals. They will also ask some of these provocative (and tasty) questions: What is the role and power of food culture in our society? What could it be? And is it okay for food to sometimes just be delicious?
The session will include opportunities for attendees to ask their questions and share their own perspectives and experiences.
