This was in response to the Oxford Food Symposium being a virtual event this year to discuss the theme Herbs & Spices. In advance of the Symposium I emailed all of the symposiasts asking for candid, unplanned photographs of their kitchens showing how they store spices and herbs. I was lucky enough to get one 122 replies from 22 countries during the pandemic in June, when most of us were in lockdown across the world.... It was a real joy chatting, even briefly, to so many people. There’s ingenuity at play in many kitchens; stacking and racking systems, make-do-and- mend, custom labelling, and knowing that amongst the gorgeous chaos you can still find your favourite spice or herb....Thank you to everyone who took the time to contribute.


"Memories are made of this (whether you were there or not): Jake's fabulous full-colour OFS 2020 Annual gathers together all the visuals from the V-Symp, including herb-and-spice labels and all four of the menus and recipes as demonstrated and discussed by our invited chefs, Asma Khan, David Tannis with Jill Norman, the team from Fogo Island and St. Catz head chef Tim Kelsey (memorable moments).  Richard Shepro and Naomi Duguid write about what it was like to be there."
