As part of the Food and Agriculture Organization’s World Food Day celebrations taking place online, the documentary In Good Taste had its World Premiere at United Nations World Food Day. The film brings together the insights of recognized physicians, foragers, ocean and regenerative farmers, designers, educators, and journalists to explore what it means to have ‘good taste’.
