Isolation and loneliness during Covid impacted greatly on people's nutrition and wellbeing. As we recover there has never been a better opportunity to renew our focus, not only on our food culture and investment in choice and quality food, but on the links and connections made possible through dining together.
Maggie Beer AO will be in conversation with Prof Andrew Cole, who will share his personal reflections on how food and dining played an important role in his connection with his mother, and how the isolation caused by Covid had a devastating impact. Maggie and Andrew will discuss not only the challenges, but also the opportunities in a brave new world of cooking and dining for older people.
