Mpho Tshukudu Bio

I am an integrative and functional nutritionist, eco-gastronome, author and pilates instructor.    

I believe that food is not just about taste and nutrition. It is an inter-connected network of:

  • Memories and cultural reflections

  • Rituals of usage, situations and behaviour

  • Communication and connection

  • Production: sun, water, plants animals and humans

You are not just eating food, you are experiencing a system

My research and communication interests are:

  • Integrative and functional nutrition

  • Heritage and indigenous Southern African foods

  • Taste science and health

  • Sustainable high quality foods creation and legislation

  • Food history and culture
