Cook Behind The Book Literary Lunch with Prue Leith CBE, Friday 21st June


We are collaborating with renowned UK gourmets to bring together a love of good food and literature with our literary lunch series, ‘Cook Behind The Book’. The first event of the series will be hosted by Prue Leith CBE at Calcot & Spa on Friday 21st June.

Renowned chef, restaurateur, journalist, novelist and TV presenter (Prue is currently a judge on the Great British Bake-Off and was, for 11 years, a judge on the Great British Menu) Prue is also the founder of award-winning Leith’s School of Food and Wine. She will be talking about her new book, ‘Prue, My All-Time Favourite Recipes’, which will be followed by a 3-course lunch prepared by the team at Calcot.

Prue Leith CBE has been at the top of the British food scene for over fifty years. In her latest book, she draws on a life-long passion for food with a hundred recipes from her own kitchen table. She will talk of her adventures in the hospitality industry, journalism and TV, her involvement with the arts and her obsession with teaching children a love of good food and how to eat healthily.

The intimate event will be hosted in the barn at Calcot, a charming country hotel and spa, located amongst a lime-tree-scattered courtyard and surrounded by acres of meadowland in the Cotswolds. The event will be followed by a three-course-lunch prepared by the first-class team behind their Conservatory restaurant.

The event is set to be the first amongst a line-up of celebrated chefs across the UK’s favourite hotels and restaurants, accompanied by meals from their applauded in-house teams, to be named in the coming months.

Tickets are £75 including Prue’s cookbook ‘Prue, My All-Time Favourite Recipes’. Guests will enjoy a mocktail on arrival, a Question and Answer session with Prue Leith, followed by a delicious three course lunch including a glass of wine.
