Each speaker will offer their own unique perspective in a series of 15-minute talks on the cultural, social, environmental and educational aspects of making food more sustainable.

Amongst those participating will be Relais & Châteaux, who continue to place eco-friendly cuisine at the heart of their hospitality ethos.

Three of Relais & Châteaux’s chefs are set to talk and debate about the future of food in a panel discussion focusing on marine resources and sustainable seafood solutions called ‘Fish Unknown: Diversifying Your Plate’.

Foodies are invited to join Silvia Baracchi of Relais Il Falconiere, Guy Owen of Idle Rocks at St. Mawes and James Coffey, Park Hotel Kenmare as they speak about their experiences and ideas.
