Join traditional food conservationist Max Jones of @uptherethelast for a talk and tasting of ancient and forbidden foods intertwined with the ancient practice of transhumance. Max will have just returned from the desalpa in the Alps, bringing with him examples of rare foods whose recipes are as old as the mountains themselves. Expect stories and tastings of ancient foods from Italy and Ireland, sharing the common thread of transhumance and how the secrets of the past hold the key to the future of food.
Max Jones is a traditional food conservationist who documents imperiled food practices that are steeped in our connection with the land and seas, to try and prevent them from becoming lost. He has been working with artisan cheeses around Europe for over a decade, and has been specifically drawn to the traditional alpine pastoralists practicing transhumance in northern Italy. He is also involved in supporting Irish fishermen and works closely with Sally Barnes, the last exclusively wild salmon smoker in Ireland.
