If you love cooking, cookery books, food shopping – and puddings! – a brand new event in Lowdham next week has all the ingredients you could ask for…
Nottinghamshire Flavours magazine and The Bookcase are joining forces to present Cooking The Books in Lowdham Village Hall on Sunday 1 March.
Included on the menu between 10am and 4pm there’ll be a Food Fair featuring local artisan producers and a series of talks by food writers.
Georgina Mason will be sharing the story of Gonalston Farm Shop from 10.30am to 11.15am; award-winning writer Hattie Ellis discusses her new book Spoonsful of Honey from11.45am to 12.30pm; and between 1.30pm and 2.15pm, Diana Birch of WI Enterprises will be talking about The WI Cookbook, a fascinating insight into the organisation’s baking history which has been produced to celebrate its centenary.
Also on hand from 2.45pm to 3.30pm will be the Cook&Book team Julia Pirie and Jackie Skinner, there to whip up a couple of seasonal recipes garnished with some springtime readings.
Entry to the Food Fair, held in the main hall, is free; tickets for individual talks are £5 (£4 for concessions, £3 for Festival Friends) or £15, £12 and £10 for entry to all daytime events.
And to round off the day, how about joining The JollyGoodFellows Pudding Club for a two-course dinner with Pudding Platter, dessert wine tasting and poems about puddings too? Advance booking for this is essential and tickets are £25 each.
