Join the Institute of Philosophy and Institute of Physics to explore how physics contributes to our perceptions and experience of food. With tastings from chefs, demonstrations by physicists and talks from philosophers, explore the foods we might eat in the future, discover how humble foods can be transformed into sustainable delicacies and find out how we can enhance our dining experiences. From the gastrophysics of food to how to eat well, we’ll be addressing the current issues of food culture and showing how science is helping to overcome them.
This event is part of the University of London's hub programme, 'Ministry of hope and fear', for the Being Human festival.
As our Festival events are free, not everyone who asks for tickets comes to our events. To make sure we have a full house we allocate more tickets than there are seats. We do our best to get the numbers right, but unfortunately we occasionally have to disappoint people. Admission is on a first come, first served basis, so please arrive in good time for the start of the event.
