In this episode we hear from Alice Zaslavsky, a food literacy advocate, resident Culinary Correspondent for ABC News Breakfast and ABC Radio, author of In Praise of Veg, Alice’s Food A-Z, and creator of Phenomenom!.
We talk about food literacy and education, the cultural disconnect from food, aspirational food media, ‘othering’ of veg, how we label and communicate about food and bringing pleasure back into eating. You can follow Alice on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and In Praise of Veg and Phenomenom! on Instagram.
