The British Library has rescheduled its season of Food themed talks to take place online, starting 14 September. Each talk is £5 and can be booked here.
The first talk in the series is the chef, writer and campaigner Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall talking about sustainability, food provenance and wellbeing with award-winning food writer Bee Wilson. My particular interest is the talk on 21 September in which Claudia Roden and historian Simon Schama will draw from their research and personal experience to discuss the history, evolution and culture of Jewish food. I had booked to attend this event back in May, it was of course cancelled so I was quite excited to be able to re-book. Do look through the whole season as there are some great talks in the series,
Separately, I also spotted, and booked for, Stephen Fry in conversation at the British Library on 1 October.
