This September the University of Oxford is hosting The Bountiful Sea Conference – a blend of historic information, culinary delights and academic discussion. To support the event, we are giving away tickets and accommodation for 2! (see details below).
Over 3 days, attendees will learn about the history of fishing and fish processing by the Romans, and enjoy some of the food and drinks they created. You will even get to enjoy a Roman Seafood Dinner. It will be an exciting experience for both the mind and the body, where you will undoubtedly experience tastes that you have never known before. The conference starts at 3pm on the 6th Sept, and the full program can be downloaded here.
Aside from learning about history and tasting some interesting foods, the conference will offer a unique insight into historic food preparation and production. Before the time of preservatives, freezers and farmed fish, people had to find different ways to keep their food nutritious and safe to eat. Seafood posed one of the biggest challenges of all. It is a source of highly nutritious but very reactive omega-3 fatty acids, and the Romans discovered some very novel (and sadly largely forgotten) ways to preserving it. The foods they created through these preservation methods were extremely nutritious, and were the inspiration for the creation of Green Pasture’s Fermented Cod Liver Oil. We have long been advocates of Green Pasture’s Cod Liver Oil – it is unique among all other cod liver oils, and I believe the extent of its health benefits have not yet been fully realised yet.
The information provided in this conference is of great importance and relevance to the understanding of good health. Not only do we want to support the conference and the message they are giving, but we also want to help spread the information. So, in collaboration with Green Pasture, we are offering a conference give-away for 2 people, which includes:
- Tickets to the entire conference (Wednesday 6th – Friday 8th September) worth £100 each.
- Including keynote lecture, Roman fish tasting dinner, conference pack, academic sessions, sauce tastings, wine receptions, two lunches, tea & coffee.
- Accommodation for 2 for the duration of the conference (in the historic Oxford University). More information on these rooms can be found here.
- Some financial contribution for travel (UK only).
