Q & A with Carolyn Steel, Author of Hungry City

Carolyn Steel is a 2013 JBF Food Conference speaker

 

Continuing our series of interviews with featured speakers and panelists at this year’s JBF Food Conference, we got in touch with Carolyn Steel, author of Hungry City: How Food Shapes Our Lives. Steel’s concept of “sitopia” (food-place) has gained wide recognition in the emergent field of food urbanism. A London-based architect, lecturer and writer, Steel has been a visiting lecturer and design tutor at Cambridge, London Metropolitan and Wageningen Universities, as well as at the London School of Economics. Steel writes and broadcasts regularly on food, architecture and urbanism, and is in international demand as a speaker. In a few weeks, Carolyn will be taking the JBF Food Conference stage for a talk entitled, "The Hardscape of Appetite".
