There are few things we like more than listening to (or watching) some of our favourite cooks and chefs, and next month some of them will be in action en masse as the Cookbook Confidential festival hits the South Bank. On 5th September you can hear cooks and writers like Diana Henry, Kay Plunkett-Hogge, Gizzi Erskine, Olia Hercules and Leon’s John Vincent in conversation discussing everything from how to write a cookbook to the inspiration behind some of the city’s favourite eateries such as Hawksmoor, Foxlow or Pitt Cue Co. There are workshops too from James Wong, patissier Eric Lanlard, Chetna Makan and Sabrina Ghayour, whose debut book Persiana has contributed so many fab things to our repertoire since it was published last summer.
Better still Cookbook Confidential is offering one lucky reader a cookbook of their choice along with a pair of tickets to one of the day’s talks or workshops. Fill in the boxes below to enter and we will pull one name from the hat on 13th August at 5pm. Good luck!
