Description

The PAL Ottawa Social Circle invites you to join us for a discussion on “The Future of Food,” with Sandy Mackay-Smith, from Juniper Farm in Wakefield.

When: Wednesday 26 June 2019 from 4 to 5:30 pm

Where: Ottawa Art Gallery at 10 Daly Avenue, in the Studio

In Sandy’s words, “I read New York Chef Dan Barber’s book, The Third Plate, which deals with the future of food. It interested me so much that it still stands as one of my ten all-time favourite books. My plan is to discuss issues raised in the book with, I hope, lots of interaction from the audience, as food is something we can all relate to.

"My 12-year experience with my family at Juniper Farm, a certified organic bio-dynamic vegetable farm in Wakefield, Quebec has provided many interesting illustrations of themes Dan brings up in his book. Here is a ‘taste’ of thoughts for discussion: ‘Where does taste/flavour fit in, or does it matter anymore?’ ‘Is there really a chronic shortage of food in the world, or is it a question of organizing ourselves better?’"

Come and join me in what I think will stimulate you about food and food habits that, but for the farm, were entirely new thinking to me, and maybe to you too.”
