James Wong, the ethnobotantist who describes himself as a plant scientist with a lifelong food fixation, gives a straight-talking guide to making everyday foods healthier and tastier.
His lecture is based on his latest book, How To Eat Better, which strips away the fad diets, superfood fixations and Instagram hashtags to give you a straight-talking scientist’s guide to making everyday foods far healthier (and tastier) simply by changing the way you select, store and cook them.
No diets, no obscure ingredients, just real food made better, based on the latest scientific evidence from around the world. With these three simple principles botanist and BBC broadcaster James Wong shows you how to make any food a ‘superfood’, every time you cook.
Where is the talk taking place?
