Sitopia

There was an interesting episode of Radio 4’s The Food Programme a few weeks ago… or ten years in the future. It was called Sitopia and based on a recently released book of the same name by Carolyn Steel, drawn from the Ancient Greek σῖτος (grain, bread or food in general) and τόπος (place). The conceit of the programme is that Steel has become Prime Minister of the United Kingdom during the 2020’s, bringing healing to a nation scarred by Brexit, COVID-19 and other issues by promoting strategies aimed at providing good food and a healthy relationship to its means of production for all.

It is a utopian idea but the programme does a good job of presenting it. Worth a listen.
