Ethnicisation of food in Britain


On 3 December CMCI will be visited by one of Britain’s leading scholars of food history, Professor Panikos Panayi (pictured).

Professor Panayi will give a talk entitled ‘From Bread and Dripping to Balti Chicken: Cookbooks, Restaurants and the Ethnicisation of Food in Britain’, exploring the emergence of our current multicultural eating habits via the history of cookbooks, restaurants and marketing in Britain, from the 19th-century to the present day, focussing especially on the changes that occurred in UK cuisine with the arrival of immigrants from Africa, Asia and the Caribbean in the post-World War II period.

The talk is moderated by Dr Harvey G. Cohen of CMCI, and takes place 6.30-8.30pm, Thursday 3 December 2009, in the Safra Lecture Theatre, Strand Campus, King’s College London. All are welcome – booking not required.
