New Baltic Cuisine Talks Ep.2 - Baltic cook books and marketing
Sustainable gastronomy means cuisine that takes into account where the ingredients are from, how the food is grown and how it gets to our markets and eventually to our plates. Baltic food culture and heritage, the variation of traditional and regenerative farmers and diversity of regions all combined with sustainability, is so worth visiting and exploring, both for locals and international visitors. Here the speakers will discuss and guide us on how to take the lead to foster and accelerate sustainable food tourism with focus on New Baltic Cuisine. Speakers - Zuza Zak, food storyteller and author of Amber and Rye: A Baltic food journey. - Simon Bajada the author of Baltic: New and Old Recipes from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. - Dr Romas Malevicius, Lecturer in Marketing at King's College London. Key expertise - marketing, sustainability, and education for sustainability.
