Or is something more revolutionary going on?
In her delicious book, Small Fires: an Epic in the Kitchen, author Rebecca May Johnson explores how cooking is thinking; the transformative dynamics of shared meal, the steps we follow when we walk into a kitchen and tie those apron strings.
For this talk, afternoon tea is included, so please join Rebecca and Ruth Dugdall for a homemade scone and scrumptious conversation about the recipes we choose – how they work as memoirs – and the full meaning of the thing we do every day: the power of small fires burning everywhere.
Ticket price includes tea or coffee and scone.
