If lockdown has achieved one thing, it’s got people cooking. We want to hear about your family-favourite recipes, your culinary triumphs and your catering catastrophes. Whether they’re written down or ingrained in memory, come along and tell us how you’ve cooked through the past 12 months.

This will be an interactive event where we’ll share thoughts on home cooking, discuss the cookery books we love and the recipes we could not live without. Hosted by award-winning food-writers Lindsey Bareham and Georgina Hayden with Food Season Guest Director Angela Clutton.

Lindsey Bareham is best known for her daily after-work recipes – first in the London Evening Standard for eight years, more recently for 12 years in The Times, and now writing the cookery column for The Idler. Along the way she has brought up two sons and written 15 cookbooks including One Pot Wonders, The Fish Store, The Big Red Book of Tomatoes and Just One Pot, plus two cookbooks with Simon Hopkinson: The Prawn Cocktail Years and Roast Chicken and Other Stories. Lockdown has meant even more cooking, lunch and dinner. My Week in Food, a diary of food shopping, cooking, eating, favourite websites, shops and restaurants with tips and advice, can be found at www.lindseybareham.com.

Georgina Hayden is a food writer and stylist from North London. Having grown up above her grandparents' Greek Cypriot restaurant in North London, she has a keen interest in family recipes and nostalgia around food. She spent 12 years developing and styling recipes for Jamie Oliver, before going solo and writing her own books. Both of her books, Stirring Slowly and Taverna, revolve around family and the shared joy around food. Georgina also writes columns for publications including the Telegraph, Waitrose Magazine and The Wine Society magazine, and regularly appears on TV – including a regular slot on Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch – on radio and at many food festivals.
