For March’s Cookbook Club we’ll be joined by award-winning author Caroline Eden, who will be talking with us about her latest book, Red Sands: Reportage and Recipes through Central Asia from Hinterland to Heartland.
Red Sands, the follow-up to Caroline Eden's multi-award-winning Black Sea, is a reimagining of traditional travel writing using food as the jumping-off point to explore Central Asia. In a quest to better understand this vast heartland of Asia, Caroline navigates a course from the shores of the Caspian Sea to the sun-ripened orchards of the Fergana Valley. It is a book filled with human stories, forgotten histories and tales of adventure as well as recipes.
While there’s no pressure to cook, attendees will be sent a couple of recipes from Red Sands and there will be an opportunity to talk about what you have made, share your thoughts on the book, or ask Caroline a question at the event.
Once you have joined, we’ll email you back with your membership number and details of how to book to attend events. That will include how to let us know what dish you’ll be making and information about the loyalty card for Cookbook Club and other membership benefits which include a complimentary Borough Wines refill bottle carrying the bespoke Cookbook Club label, to use at their Borough Market stand.
