Page Breaks – PIZZA (19 May)

This week, we’re reflecting on pizza, and more broadly on how food can help us think more intently about authenticity and identity.

“I view authenticity like a totalitarian state. It’s something that I think has been overvalued, but the reality is that it hasn’t been scrutinised enough. “
