Cook the Books returns after a summer break with a ‘Special Edition’ event for OctoberFeast with food critic Andy Lynes, author of Brighton’s Best Cookbook.
The theme this month is ‘local’ – think about ingredients grown or produced nearby; dishes inspired by those you’ve tried at our region’s restaurants; or perhaps something traditional, maybe Sussex Pond Pudding or the infamous Banoffie Pie?
Join us at our usual haunt, The Lewes Arms, for a bring-a-dish dinner and a chat about our favourite cookbooks.
Andy, one of the most followed UK restaurant critics, will start the evening with a few words about how he put Brighton’s Best Cookbook together and his approach to recipe writing and editing.
We’ll follow as usual, with a brief intro to what each of us has brought followed by a two-course feast of home-cooked food.
Signed copies of Brighton’s Best Cookbook will be available to buy on the night.
New to Cook the Books? Here are some tips
Be prepared to give a brief, informal intro to the group about what you have brought
No need to go wild: a single dish as per recipe to serve 2-4 should be ample
Leftovers must be taken home with you
Bring appropriate storage and serving equipment for your dish
Paper plates and disposable cutlery will be provided but, to cut down on waste, guests are encouraged to bring their own
