Black British Lives Matter with Lenny Henry and Marcus Ryder
Black British Food Matters With Zoe Adjonyoh and Melissa Thompson
This is the podcast where we explore why and how Black British lives matter –What it means to be Black and British, our culture, our joy and our pain.
This week we discuss why Black British Food Matters with Zoe Adjonyoh, founder of Zoe’s Ghana Kitchen and award-winning food journalist Melissa Thompson. Food plays a central role in any society. It carries our culture across generations and holds secrets about our history. We also ask if the food wider society values contains racist overtones, for example why is French cuisine regularly seen as the height of “good cooking” while West African food is rarely mentioned?
