UPCOMING ONLINE EVENTS FOR COOKBOOK CLUB MEMBERS
Borough Market’s Cookbook Club is for anyone who loves good food, good cookery books and good company. If that is you, then sign up (for free) to join the club and you will be eligible to come along to our small, friendly Cookbook Club events, which are currently taking place over Zoom. When you join the Club, you will be emailed the links you need to register for the events.
Hosted by Angela Clutton, each event has a landmark cookery book chosen as its theme. Club members are asked to come to the event ready to share their thoughts on any dishes they might have made, or just to share their thoughts about the book and its themes in general.
Makan: Recipes from the heart of Singapore
By Elizabeth Haigh
Thursday 13th May, 6:30 – 8pm
Elizabeth Haigh – of Borough Market’s Mei Mei – draws together recipes that have been handed down through many generations of her family, from nonya to nonya, creating a time-capsule of a cuisine. Makan is Elizabeth’s love-letter to the family cooking she grew up with. Elizabeth will be sharing with members who sign up to the event a couple of recipes from the book. Please come along ready to talk about those if you made them, or anything else you might have made from the book. (Limited places – see below.)
Crave: Recipes arranged by flavour, to suit your mood and appetite
By Ed Smith
Thursday 10th June, 6:30 – 8pm
This is our member cookalong event. We will be sending out ahead of time the recipe that you can cook at your home as you watch Ed Smith cooking it from his and hear him talk all about his latest book. Crave is Ed’s third cookbook (following On The Side, and Borough Market Cookbook – which many of you know of course!). In it, Ed aims to help cooks home in on their cravings (whatever the reason for them) by organising his recipes within six flavour profiles: fresh and fragrant; chilli and heat; tart and sour; spiced and curried; rich and savoury; and (best of all?) cheesy and creamy.
From the Veg Patch
By Kathy Slack
Thursday 15th July, 6:30 – 8pm
Kathy Slack takes us through a year in her veg patch in this celebration of her ten favourite things to grow and eat: peas, lettuce, courgettes, beans, tomatoes, beetroot, squash, apples, kale and leeks. Most recipes are vegetarian, some use meat or fish, but every dish makes veg the star of the plate. All with Kathy’s typical writing – and visual – flair. Kathy will be sharing with members who sign up to the event a couple of recipes from the book. So you will be able to come along ready to talk about those if you made them, or about anything else you might have made from the book. (Limited places – see below.)
PLEASE NOTE: Places for May and July are limited and will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. These will be in our usual smaller, conversational style (just us – no author), allowing maximum participation from those of you who come along. To allow as many members as possible to take part across the season, members can come to one but not both. Please email Angela to let her know if you have a preference – if you register for both, she will make the choice for you!
Happily, our June cookalong event has unlimited places.
