Cooking the Books - Dinner with Edward by Isobel Vincent
Date: Thursday 6th May, 2021
Start Time: 19:00
End Time: 21:00
A series of book club evenings, cooking the books will join Liz Ellis of Kemps Book Shop, Malton for discussion on our chosen book while Gilly rustles up two dishes from the book, demo and dine style.
‘Everyone deserves her own Edward – and everyone deserves to read this book.’ When Isabel meets Edward, both are at a crossroads: he wants to follow his late wife to the grave, and she is ready to give up on love. Thinking she is merely helping Edward’s daughter by agreeing to check in on her nonagenarian dad, Isabel has no idea that the man in the kitchen baking the sublime roast chicken and light-as-air apricot soufflé will end up changing her life. As Edward and Isabel meet weekly for the glorious dinners Edward prepares, he shares so much more than his recipes for apple galette, the perfect martini or tips for deboning poultry. Edward is teaching Isabel the luxury of slowing down and taking the time to think through everything she does, to deconstruct her own life, cutting it back to the bone and examining the guts, no matter how messy that proves to be. Dinner with Edward is a book about love and nourishment, sorrow and joy, and about how dinner with a friend can, in the words of M.F.K. Fisher, ‘sustain us against the hungers of the world’.
Spend a quality couple of hours amongst friends, discussing our latest book choice and enjoying a light supper over a glass of wine.
Includes 2-course dinner and a glass of wine.
