Good Food Conversations

Good Food Conversations with Biowatch

Produced by Biowatch South Africa, GOOD FOOD CONVERSATIONS is a podcast about good food – food that’s good for us and good for the planet.


Launched on World Food Day 2020, the podcast celebrates diversity in what we grow, cook, eat and store, and the diversity of voices passionate about good food that nourishes our bodies and our lives, as well as the web of life we share our gardens, fields, pastures and waters with.

We launch with three conversations:  

  • Fakazile Mthethwa and Nikki Brighton, talk about increasing the diversity on our plates by being creative about what we harvest from the plants we grow, and what we forage from wild plants growing in our gardens and fields.
  • Vanessa Black, says that as much as we need diversity on our plates, we also need diversity in a food system that offers us more and better choices about what we eat, how our food is grown, and how we access it.
  • Zayaan Khan, gives us tips on how to improve the diversity in our kitchens – and the nutrition in our diets – with fermentation and other ancient methods.

New conversations will be added weekly. Upcoming episodes include conversations with Mpho Tshukudu, author of Eat-Ting, and Nobhongo Gxolo, Third Culture Experiment food club host.
