When? 23rd of Octobmer 2019, 7:30-10:30pm
Where? Foodhall Sheffield, 121 Eyre St, Sheffield S1 4QW
There is a great event at Foodhall coming up – a night full of philosophically intriguing questions about food, and intriguing philosophical food that’s all about questions.
“We’ll be asking whether food can be art, whether it can ever be permissible to use animals or their products for food (although we won’t be), and whether some food truly is better than others. We’ll be trying to work out whether a burrito is a sandwich, what the opposite of eating is, and whether pitta bread is bread or one huge crust. Also less frivolously, what can we do to address the widening of the food wealth gap that will inevitably hit post-brexit.”
All questions will be served up alongside some tasty grub that’s bound to tickle your brain cells as well as your taste buds, and some talks that might tickle your brain cells but won’t interact with your taste buds.
Plates are served on a contribute-what-you-can basis. There’s a recommended donation of £10, £5 if that’s a bit too much – but no one will be turned away due to a lack of funds.
Unfortunately, Foodhalls toilets are not wheelchair accessible – but you can find more info on Foodhalls’ accessibility here!
