Will China Towns close, restaurants move online & eating habits change?
Our fifth episode of Blue Collar Conversations offers plenty of food for thought. After hitting the national headlines last week, this episode promises to be just as newsworthy as Esther chats with three people with very different perspectives on the UK food industry and whether COVID-19 has changed most people’s eating habits.
Ching-He Huang (01:17) is a Chinese food writer, TV chef and author of 6 best-selling Chinese cookery books— a real foodie entrepreneur! From a farming family in Taiwan that regularly used wet markets, Ching talks about how COVID-19 could spell the end of China Towns right across the UK.
David Green (17:37) is creator of orderfrom.co.uk, a website helping save our country’s restaurants. He shares some of the extraordinary patterns he’s seen developing online during this period of disruption and reveals which businesses have done the best.
Professor Sarah Bridle (27:54) is an astrophysicist and data science specialist who is mapping data about food consumption, the environment and changing eating habits. She explains more about zero carbon food and the opportunities for people to change their thinking in lockdown.
