A very special evening to celebrate a sumptuous new edition of roast figs, sugar snow - a hidden gem at the heart of Diana Henry's extraordinary cookbook repertoire.
I adore Diana Henry's recipes and I adore her food writing even more. I was hooked from the moment I made her Rosemary, Lemon, Olive Oil Cake in Crazy Water, Pickled Lemons. She is one of those influential authors whose cookbooks not only inspire but help give confidence and perhaps even a little swagger to home cooks. This evening will take the form of a culinary ode to all things Diana Henry opening with an apéritif to welcome you, followed by a talk and Q&A with little taster plates from Roast Figs, Sugar Snow and a book signing at the end.
Diana Henry's classic cookbook Roast Figs Sugar Snow has been refreshed and revised nearly 20 years after its first publication, with a new foreword by Nigel Slater and seven new recipes. Full of comforting delights from cold-weather climes - from the ski slopes of Italy, to the coffee houses of Vienna and Budapest, the rural reaches of New England and beyond - these recipes will bring warmth to your heart as well as your home.
Expect tastes of Smoked Duck with Farro, Red Chicory and Pomegranates, Georgian Cheese Pies, Skier's Chocolate with Bugnes, Roast Figs and Plums in Vodka with Cardamom Cream and Snow Biscuits.
'Roast Figs, Sugar Snow has been in my kitchen since the day I first opened it. Here is a book that celebrates not only the ingredients of the winter shopping bag, the pumpkins and pomegranates, chestnuts and soft, sweet spices, but the heart and soul of the season. Each paragraph is a carol to what makes the cooking of the cold months something to cherish.' - Nigel Slater
