Charlotte Maberly is a lecturer on and co-creator of the QMU MSc Gastronomy - the UK’s first interdisciplinary study of food aiming to change the way we think about what & how we eat, and where it comes from.

Charlotte’s love of food has led her around the world exploring food cultures, learning about the complexities of our global food system, teaching urban agriculture, and working for the US’ only organic farmland trust. She obtained her masters degree at the University of Gastronomic Sciences (UniSG) in Italy and then returned to Scotland motivated to bring a global perspective to local food education.

In April 2016, along with members of UniSG and the QMU Gastronomy team, Charlotte organised the UK’s first Gastronomy symposium - Scotland’s FoodScape. The event explored the significance of food in Scotland and involved producers, policy makers, artists, eaters & academics from around the world.

She also teaches Gastronomy at UniSG, the Anna Tasca Lanza Cookery School in Sicily & via short courses & presentations around Scotland.
