Matt Wilkinson is one of our favourite (and cheekiest) local chefs and we've managed to steal him away from his kitchen for an hour or two next week!
His first book Mr Wilkinson's Favourite Vegetables (one of our favourite books for 2013) was a runner up for the prestigious IACP Julia Child award in 2014. His new book Mr Wilkinson's Simply Dressed Salads, in our view, will be a contender for the big cookbook prizes this year.
Why? Because it's great casual food, beautifully, yet simply presented that screams "Eat Me"; all in a gorgeous quirky design, richly illustrated with real and personal photographs.
Matt's writing has all the hallmarks of his birthplace - Yorkshire; dry, witty personal, slightly salty and honest. We loved reading it and have also loved cooking from it!
Coming from a classical and fine dining background, Matt champions local and passionate producers as well as his home grown veg. Throughout the book Matt shares a wealth of practical experience with his guides to dressings and views on 'salad design'.
We'll be serving up a number of fabulous tastes from the book whilst we have a chat to Matt 'unplugged' about his new book, his love for salads and vegetables and his forthright views on food and it's producers.
Please join us for an intimate, fun & tasty evening!
