Community Food Centres Canada hosts a conversation with Mark Bittman on The Pleasure and Politics of Food, at the Great Hall, October 11.


Food plays a huge and fundamental role in our lives. It’s what connects us to each other, and it’s at the centre of many of society’s most pressing issues, from income and health to climate change and land rights.

Few know more about the politics and pleasure of food than journalist and advocate Mark Bittman. The bestselling author of more than 20 food and cooking books is one of North America’s most well-respected voices on the many facets of the food file, from how to bake a perfect loaf of bread to how our food policies impact our health and the health of our planet.

If you love food and care about how our food choices shape our lives, you won’t want to miss this wide-ranging conversation between Mark Bittman and Ann Hui, National Food Reporter at the Globe and Mail.
