Salman Rushdie and Claudia Roden talks at Jikoni

Talks from top people plus delicious food to go with. The formula for Jikoni’s Civilised Sundays is simple yet appealing, so much so that the first series sold out in a flash. Series two is now underway with tickets about to be released for March and April when Ravinder Bhogal will host Salman Rushdie and Claudia Roden at her Marylebone restaurant. Salman Rushdie (15 March) will be reading from his latest novel Quichotte, inspired by Don Quixote, which was shortlisted for a Booker Prize in 2019, as well as answering a Q&A. Claudia Roden (19 April), a personal food hero of Ravinder’s will be discussing her award-winning food writing and how The Book of Middle Eastern Food revolutionised Western attitudes to the cooking of the Middle East when it was published in 1968. Tickets include a welcome drink, the talks and a bespoke feast from Ravinder that plays tribute to her guests heritage, and go on sale here on Friday 21 February.
