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
