The Spice Journey is a pop-up experience organised by the new BCU Network for Research on Food. You’ll have the opportunity to experience some new taste sensations and ask questions about the role that spices play in our dietary experience. Researchers will be on hand to talk you through the Spice Journey; where do these tastes come from and where do they fit into the global food system? What can flavours around the world teach us about sustainability and how might we use those lessons to resolve issues of food security?
The BCU Network for Research on Food is a new pan-university initiative to bring together students and researchers who have a shared interest in food. Spanning the physical sciences, social sciences, arts and humanities, the study of food is interdisciplinary and it’s time that the connections were made to widen the discussion to everyone.
The Network will facilitate research engagement at all levels, giving students with an interest in food the opportunity to present their own research and engage with academics studying food from a range of perspectives.
Join us at our pop-up stand on the 2nd of November in Curzon Atrium to sample some new tastes that might lead to a food journey of your own
