Food: a subject close to our hearts and souls, as well as our stomachs. Two award-winning foodies — journalist and Spectator restaurant critic, Tanya Gold, and journalist, broadcaster and Observer food critic Jay Rayner — talk about subjects including why the people of the book became so passionate about what we put into our bodies; the role of the food critic in today’s society; wonderful — and appalling — meals they have eaten; and how our relationship with food has changed with the rising awareness of ethical eating.
Sponsored by Jonathan Ellis in memory of his parents, Harry and Amy Ellis
