Plants are a very important source of food. This half-day workshop explores what plants add to our food and drinks – colour, flavour and texture as well as nutrients and potentially beneficial medicinal compounds. We will also look at why some plants are popular foods and others less so, and identify some of the foods which have attracted the attention of criminals. By the end of the morning you’ll never look at the plants on your plate or in your cup in quite the same way again!
