From time immemorial, food has not only defined the way we live our lives but has also been a catalyst for change. From the prehistoric hunter-gatherers to the dawn of the industrial revolution to the birth of veganism, food has transformed landscapes, societies and the people within them. The UK food and drink industry currently generates around £121 billion annually and employs over four million people. At the epicentre of this booming industry is London. The multicultural city is bursting in culinary diversity, from Michelin-starred joints to buzzy street markets and artisanal cafés – some would say the city, its residents, and its tourists are spoilt for choice.
