Food Season

Unleash your inner gourmet and intellectual hunger

Heston Blumenthal, Nigella Lawson, Nadiya Hussain, Yotam Ottolenghi, Grace Dent, Jay Rayner and Jack Monroe are just some of the tasty names joining our second Food Season of events, inspired by the Library’s extensive food-related collections.

Take your pick from our menu of events below.

WATCH: See what happened when food historian Polly Russell met chef Ali Stevenson to try out a 1919 recipe in a very 21st-century kitchen.
