Eat Your Words is a celebration of eating together and the culture and history of classic cookbooks. Enjoy dishes brought to life by chefs from the very pages you are discussing, hosted by the Chapel as part of the Abergavenny Food Festival. Join Rosie Sykes and Kevin McFadden as they cook dishes from Alistair Little’s classic cookbook ‘Keep It Simple‘. Whilst you eat, Ishita Wilkins talks you through the inspiration and intricacies behind the food of the award-winning book.
Alistair Little is known as the Godfather of modern British cooking and his Soho restaurant became known for the vividness of his radically simple dishes. An early advocate of ethical food, Little placed importance on the supply chain of ingredients and let the flavors do the talking. Keep It Simple was published in 1994 and won a Glenfiddich Award the same year.
