Food writer and MasterChef South Africa winner Kamini Pather's mission is to discover how food is changing the way people think about themselves and their city. Pather sets out to discover the history, culture and ethnic diversity of cities through food from the people who have the inside story: local food bloggers and their communities. Pather explores the cultural histories of each city evident in food culture. She visits hidden gems, quiet restaurants, bustling markets, swinging night spots, breweries, pop-up dinners, cocktail bars, street stalls and neighbourhoods in transition. From Bangkok to Berlin, from Sydney to Copenhagen, from delectable haute cuisine to exotic street food, Pather eats as the locals do, soaking up the history, culture and food story of each city. Along the way she meets the people behind these food revolutions and makes new friends, proving that no matter our differences, there are few things that bridge gaps between cultures quite like food does.
