‘Rethinking food literacy – disrupting the what, where, how and why of food in education’
Bee Wilson is a writer, mostly about food. She writes for a wide range of publications including The Financial Times, The Wall Street Journal and The Guardian, for whom she has written articles on subjects including ultra-processed food and the emotions of cooking through grief. She is the author of six books on food-related subjects including First Bite, The Way We Eat Now and Consider the Fork. Her next project is a cookbook (The Secret of Cooking) due to be published next year. She is the co-founder of TastEd, a food education charity aimed at giving children opportunities to experience fresh vegetables and fruits in a joyful way. TastEd is now in more than 300 schools and nurseries in the U.K. and the idea – based on the Sapere method from Sweden and Finland – is to learn about food through play and through the senses.
