Heidelberg Cooks!

Our diet is a universal issue that no human being can escape. It is infinitely complex and permeates all areas of society. Also, our food is an ideal mirror of our way of life and shows the degree of our appreciation of raw materials and food.
The complex "food system" has long been exposed as inadequate - The consequences of our way of eating will soon be beyond us. From an ecological, health and political point of view.

Heidelberg Kocht! brings together scientists and strong voices from the culinary world on the subject of nutrition to discuss and taste together with you - time for new perspectives, arguments and solutions!
