Rising food costs mean this favorite dish of chicken and barberry rice is now out of reach for many.

In Latitudes’ Global Buffet special, we give you a taste of these issues. We’ll find out why on the same planet a billion people are hungry, and more than a billion people are overweight. We’ll look at how food can cause conflicts, and also be a source of healing. And we’ll explore the future of food—from new models of production, to using sound to change how food tastes.
