Carolyn Steel is a leading thinker on food and cities. Her award-winning 2008 book Hungry City: How Food Shapes Our Lives is an international best-seller and her concept of sitopia (food-place) has gained broad recognition in the emergent field of food urbanism.

A London-based architect, lecturer and writer, Carolyn studied architecture at Cambridge University and has since lectured and run design studios at Cambridge, London Metropolitan and Wageningen Universities as well as being the inaugural studio director of the London School of Economics Cities Programme. In international demand as a speaker, Carolyn gave a TED Talk in 2009 and is currently working on a sequel to Hungry City called Sitopia, to be published by Random House in March 2020.
