About this Event
A menu for an edible future.
In a world expected to reach a staggering population of 10 billion by 2050, and with global temperatures rising fast, humanity must fundamentally change the way it grows and consumes food. In their new book, Uncertain Harvest, authors Ian Mosby and Sarah Rotz bring together scientists, chefs, activists, entrepreneurs, farmers, philosophers, and engineers working on the global future of food to answer questions on how to make a more equitable, safe, sustainable, and plentiful food future.
As a historian and as a social scientist, Mosby and Rotz look to the past to help us better understand our culinary future. They explore our ongoing history of mostly failed predictions and use that to look at contemporary predictions of a food future dominated by robot farms, cultured meats and photosynthesis-hacked GM rice.
Join us for an engaging Zoom presentation by the two authors, followed by a Q&A period. Save today on the ticket price by becoming a member of the Culinary Historians of Canada and continue to save on future events!
