We are excited to announce we will be returning to The Skip Garden to be paying homage to one of our favourite author, chef and food extraordinaire Samin Nosrat, whose book SALT, FAT, ACID, HEAT has just been awarded a James Beard.
A mix of accessible encyclopedic foodie science, a sprinkle of autobiography, a good dash of everyday recipes that will change the way you cook and make your mouth water, this book had the ideal balance of ingredients for inspiration.
From her blossoming food career bussing tables and hoovering at Chez Panisse to the art of salting to the ultimate tart combos and salad dressings, Samin has honed a deliciously inspiring passion and accompanying career. We were lucky enough to meet her recently and were humbled by her kind words and support, and fell in love with her upbeat personality!
Joining the familiar food and farming nerds Sadhbh and Abi Aspen will be yet two more female cooks, Jess and Giorgia.
The four of us will collaborate on a four course dinner inspired by the four elements presented in the book, with a focus on ecology and sustainability (and of course deliciousness!). Samin Nosrat changed the way we look at food and strengthen our belief that everyone can cook, plus we cannot WAIT to get those tastebuds tingling!
We like to think there is a fifth element in the interactive STORIES we share through food: prepare for a journey like you have never gone on before into the origins of your food, and get ready to get stuck in!
We are really privileged to be teaming up with some amazing organisations, producers and suppliers for this event including:
