14/06: Felicity Cloake - an evening of pastries, wine and tales from le route
Join us as Felicity Cloake, author of The Guardian’s ‘How to Cook the Perfect...’, introduces 'One More Croissant for the Road', her gastronomic travelogue and love letter to France.
One more croissant for the road
Part travelogue, part food memoir, all love letter to France, One More Croissant for the Road follows ‘the nation’s taster in chief’ Felicity Cloake’s very own Tour de France, cycling 2,300km across France in search of culinary perfection; from Tarte Tatin to Cassoulet via Poule au Pot and Tartiflette. Each of the 21 ‘stages’ concludes with Felicity putting this new-found knowledge to good use in a fresh and definitive recipe for each dish – the culmination of her rigorous and thorough investigative work on behalf of all of our taste buds.
Felicity Cloake is the author of the Guardian’s long-running weekly column, ‘How
to Cook the Perfect...’ as well as having been the New Statesman’s food columnist
since 2011 and the author of four books with Fig Tree. She is award-winning journalist, having been named Cookery Journalist of the Year at the 2016 Fortnum
