Welcome to the new podcast / interview series by My Dear Kitchen in Helsinki blog. This is a project that I wanted to do for a very long time. I’ve always been interested in social, cultural and political aspects of food and I wanted to reach out to people in Finland, researchers, practitioners, activists and any other food related people, to discuss their works, the topics that emerge around food, current situation but also future projections. In the near future or later on, the location of the guests may extend beyond the borders of Finland, but my priority, at least for now, will be to see the local picture.
