We’ve all heard that food brings people together - but how can it help heal the deeper social problems in our communities?
Our guests today are four pioneers of the food movement: Italian chef Massimo Bottura and his business partner and wife Lara Gilmore share how their project Food for Soul is redefining traditional soup kitchens to help those in need, food activist Kamal Mouzawak reveals how the trauma experienced in his native Beirut led him to create the country’s first farmer’s market ‘Souk El Tayeb’, and Francisca Gorjão Henriques invites us into the kitchen of Mezze, a homey Middle Eastern restaurant in Lisbon that’s helping refugees find work - and a second home.
