Incredibly, tourist favourite Borough Market will have been trading for 1,000 years this year, and to celebrate such longevity, it’s organised a series of food-related cultural events from March until September. The programme kicks off with events organiser Toast, which will host a series of debates called Milk Tea Bread, designed to take a closer look at the staple foodstuffs we take for granted.
Taking in history, science and politics, the debates will be an entertaining and informative way of learning about where and how our food - firstly milk (11 March), then tea (18 March), then bread (25 March) is produced. Participants in the debates will include Steve Hook, dairy farmer and star of British documentary The Moo Man; self-styled tea evangelist Nick Kilby, founder of Tea Pigs; and master baker Aidan Chapman, a ’dough anarchist’ at Borough’s Bread Ahead bakery.
Tickets cost £15 including refreshments. To book tickets, visit the Toast website.
