Leading experts, writers, nutritionists and cooks will gather near Worksop for Food for Thought – an event looking at the future of food in Britain.

The Welbeck estate’s School of Artisan Food will host public talks, demonstrations and debate from figures such as Nicole Pisani, Felicity Cloake and Tim Spector, author of The Diet Myth, over the weekend of May 13 and 14.

The focus will be on trends in production and consumption, which will help artisan producers shape the future.

Alison Parente, the school’s founder, said: “We are thrilled to welcome such eminent and interesting speakers to the home of fermentation and non-industrial food skills in the heart of England.

“We are right on the button in the contemporary food scene. We’re not talking about fads and fashion, but subjects that affect our environment, health and economy.”

“It will be a privilege to listen to the leading voices in the field and learn about everything from the gut microbiome to starting your own microbakery.”
