The Finishing School…

FinishingSchool_Spring_640w

Last autumn Gill & Macmillan, in association with Le Cool, launched The Finishing School – a series of events pairing their food writers and other non-fiction authors. Aimed at people who are hungry to learn, the events proved a popular new addition to Dublin’s cultural scene. The Finishing School events draw from Gill & Macmillan’s eclectic group of authors who are ready to share their knowledge, life lessons, passion and ideas on a wide range of subjects from history to psychology, research to art, baking to craft. Lots of fun to be had!

I am so excited to announce that on Tuesday 22 April at the Royal Society of Antiquaries on Merrion Square, I will be introducing the legendary food writer Theodora Fitzgibbon to the next generation of foodies. If you have been following me on twitter, facebook and instagram, you will already know that I recently selected and photographed Theodora’s best recipes for a new book, The Pleasures of the Table: Rediscovering Theodora Fitzgibbon, published by Gill & Macmillian. It’s hitting the shelves next week and I can’t wait for you all to see it!

If you are interested, you can come along on the night and sample some of Theodora’s recipes that I have selected, followed up with an interview with myself and Nicki Howard, the publisher at Gill & Macmillan. We will be looking back over Theodora’s exciting, bohemian life and at the changing cookbook and photography styles since Theodora first published cookbooks in the 1970s.

Tickets for the events are €10 and you can find more information and booking details at www.dublin.lecool.com or www.gillmacmillanbooks.ie/thefinishingschool.
