Did you know that you could be divorced for not providing your wife with enough coffee? Or that the search for a way to obtain spices from the east led to the great Age of Exploration? Since earliest times, foods and beverages have transformed human culture and acted as a catalyst for social change, political organization, industrial development, military conflict, religious worship, geographic exploration, and economic expansion.

Join us as we discuss business in the coffee houses of London, travel the spice trail with a caravan, balance the humours, and speculate about what food might be like in the future.
