Last week's #madmonday brought Emma-Jayne Abbots, a cultural anthropologist, who presented her research about migrant women in Ecuador and the role of food traditions in transnational relationships. "Food became a way of empowering the women and helping keep families together across distances." She posed questions about whether food can also bring people together in divided nations.

At last week's #madmonday on Migration, Århus Chef Thorsten Schmidt spoke about his journey discovering the culinary history of Denmark. "Many Danish pastries are full of spices. How come, when we are not known for spices?...With the help of some history geeks, I found that in 1616, we sent a ship south to Sri Lanka..."
