May last year. Do you remember that time? A strange and eerie period where lockdown still felt new. Think shuttered shops and restaurants, and more people than ever working from home. Remember that context as you listen to this episode and ask yourself how much lockdown boredom -and the never-ending entertainment of celebrities fighting -may have played a part in the media storm surrounding food writer and chef Alison Roman whose career grounded in making good food accessible, was being questioned about elitism, and her role in what critic Roxana Hadidi called ‘colonialisation as cuisine’.
