Lecture series on our relationship with food

Food is a vital part of our existence, so it is no surprise that we are so obsessed with it. We eat for all kinds of reasons - health, pleasure, socialising, coping with stress - and at King's College London, a group of researchers and academics have devised a programme of talks & lectures for the The King's Festival of Food & Ideas, to discuss our relationship with food in more detail. The festival takes place between the 7th - 22nd March; all the talks are free to attend, but need to be booked
