Description


Food is culture

Food impacts on the everyday life of everyone. It is about sustenance and pleasure; about conviviality and showing and receiving love. Food is often the way an immigrant community begins to integrate its culture in a new homeland. Join critically acclaimed food writer Claudia Roden for a talk about her own experiences researching food.


Biography

Claudia Roden is the author of ten popular and critically-acclaimed cookery books, including: A Book of Middle Eastern Food; Coffee; Picnic: The Complete Guide to Outdoor Food; Mediterranean Cookery; The Food of Italy; The Book of Jewish Food: An Odyssey from Samarkand and Vilna to the Present Day; Claudia Roden’s Invitation to Mediterranean Cooking; Tamarind and Saffron: Favourite Recipes from the Middle East; Arabesque: Sumptuous Food from Morocco, Turkey and Lebanon; and The Food of Spain.
