What is a “Gastronaut”? with Stefan Gates

Stefan Gates is an author, TV presenter, and self-proclaimed “gastronaut” who is obsessed with the strange and adventurous stories behind food and digestion. His interest in food began while he was attending Oxford University. As a poor college student, he couldn’t exactly afford to take a date out to a nice place, so naturally, he learned to cook. Later, he got fed up with wimpy food writing and decided to try this sort of writing out for himself, and voila! He found his passion in experimenting with recipes and blowing up food for fun.

From the most exciting descriptions of food you may ever hear to the different ways people taste to the moral importance of playing with what’s on your plate, Gates ushers us through a fascinating and creative exploration of food in this episode of Beyond the Shelf.
