For a city supposedly named after a story about boiled beans, Bengaluru is very much a great food city. From neighbourhood thindis to food trucks to world class restaurants, there’s something for every palate. But as the city’s population grows to embrace people from all over the country, how are the old ways of eating changing? How has urbanisation, water scarcity and climate change impacted the hinterland around the city from where most of the food we eat comes from? Do all Bengalureans have access to the city’s produce? Who’s being left out?
In episode 2 listen to a food entrepreneur, a farmer, a public health expert and a Bengalurean who loves to run for his thindi answer the question ‘What does Bengaluru eat?’
