The Food Talks: Sheila Dillon - Monday 18th November 7pm
Join us on Monday 18th November at 7pm at Honey & Spice for an evening with Sheila Dillon.
Sheila Dillon has been a food journalist for more than three decades. She has worked on BBC Radio 4’s The Food Programme, first as a reporter, then producer and now presenter with a broad view of life in the industry.
In her early days on the programme she produced groundbreaking editions on BSE — mad cow disease — and its connections to our desire for cheap food, the rise of GM foods, the growth of the organic movement from muck and magic to multi-million pound business, and the birth of the World Trade Organisation — triggering the modern globalisation of our food supply. All at a time when those subjects were not widely covered in the media....and certainly not covered by 'food' programmes.
Recent programmes on robots in the food business, the origins of the horsemeat fraud, the glory of British pies, diet and cancer, and the inadequacies of medical training when doctors are now faced every day with diet-induced diseases, carry on the tradition. In 2000 she helped set up the BBC Food & Farming Awards which judge shops, producers, campaigners, cooks in public organisations and policy makers not only for the quality of their food but the difference they make to their communities, as well as the local and national economies.
We are so thrilled to have Sheila joining us for one night only to talk about her life and insights into the world of food.
