Charlotte Maberly is a lecturer and co-creator of the UK’s first MSc in Gastronomy. Her love of food has led her around the world, exploring food cultures and the complexities of our global food system.
She has lived in Istanbul and the North West US, where she taught urban agriculture and worked with the country’s only organic farmland trust. Experiencing the startling contrast between the bleak industrial food system of the US and the powerful food movement, moved her to pursue a masters in Food Culture and Communications at the University of Gastronomic Sciences in Italy. She has now returned home to Scotland to teach, is involved with Slow Food and supports Scotland’s burgeoning sustainable food movement in any way she can.
