This October, the global platform which supports Black and non-white persons working in hospitality media will be hosting weekly events focusing on the food and drinks world
Events will run every Tuesday throughout October (6, 13, 20, 27) and will include full days of workshops, masterclasses, cook-a-longs and discussions that explore the four pillars of Black Book: equality, visibility, wealth creation and equity.
Kicking off the series, Week #1 will focus on Equality, with drinks writer and Imbibe contributor Aleesha Hansel sharing her tips on wine and navigating her career thus far. This will be followed by a masterclass with Ronke Lawal (founder of Ariatu PR) who will explore the topic of PR & nepotism. Next will be a cook-a-long with Joe Faulkner (The Krio Kanteen), and finally a discussion between Melissa Thompson (Fowl Mouth Food) and Zoe Adjonyoh (Black Book co-founder) on pre- and post-Black Lives Matter events and how it impacted Thompson's career.
Other professionals involved include Jimi Famurewa (Evening Standard food critic), Stephen Satterfield (Whetstone magazine founder and food writer), Eden Hagos (aka @edenthefoodie and founder of Black Foodie), and Nina Oduro (leadership advisor, trainer and co-founder of Dine Diaspora).
