Discovering African Cuisine in the Digital World
Regaining African cuisine's heritage with technology is what this event is all about. Technology makes food discovery easier than ever, yet still most ethnic cuisines remain relatively unknown. Why is ethnic food’s cultural heritage so poorly claimed? What if we celebrate how technology is putting ethnic cuisine on the move?
Using the example of African cuisine(s), let's discuss how we can leverage technology to regain ethnic cuisine heritage, enrich it to create a unique identity, and ultimately democratise it in the digital world. Let's celebrate the greatness of African cuisine, with great discussion, drinks, and lovely African snacks! So we will be hacking, listening, sharing, contemplating, innovating, creating, discussing, we will be collaborating and inspiring. Connect and catch up with the influential people in the market of African food, blogging and technology.
