Description

With Michael and Pippa James and Mat Pember, moderated by Roslyn Grundy

The food we eat shapes our interactions with the world and each other. Join Michael and Pippa James from Tivoli Road Bakery and Mat Pember from The Little Veggie Patch Co for a discussion about the path our food takes to reach us, moderated by Good Food Guide co-editor Roslyn Grundy. Together they’ll explore the role of heritage grains in the diet, discoveries in native ingredients, and the sustainability, ethics and future of food production.

Michael James is a chef who was captivated by the craft of baking, and wants to inspire people to make nourishing real bread at home and to give them the confidence to adapt it to suit their own tastes. Pippa James had a career in managing restaurants before buying Tivoli Road Bakery with Michael in 2013. Their first book, The Tivoli Road Baker, is out November 2017.

Mat Pember founded The Little Veggie Patch Co in 2008, specialising in making chemical-free vegetable gardens accessible to urban dwellers. He has written three bestselling gardening books and is a regular contributor to Gourmet Traveller, the Herald Sun, and Slow Magazine.

Roslyn Grundy has been writing about food for more than 20 years and has edited several books on food, art and design.
