The Oxford Symposium on Food and Cookery is my favourite annual indulgence, where I meet many old friends from the foodie world and let fly with my thoughts and opinions on the theme of the meeting. The theme for 2019 was Food and Power, which gave me the opportunity to play the part of a prospective Brexit Minister for Food Security being interviewed by “Emily Makeshift” on the imaginary BBC programme foodnight – and really struggling! Here is the video: https://youtu.be/-RbevzoomQA. The full script with notes will appear on the Proceedings.
Some members of the audience commented that this little skit (based on the wonderful Clarke and Dawe series on Australian television) said everything that needed to be said about the topic!
