Good Food Movement – Book Club – Apr 2024

Food-lovers of Sheffield, we warmly invite you to come along to the ShefFood Book Club. THIS HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED FROM 20th MARCH

This month we will be reading In the Kitchen, Essays on Food and Life. Food can embody our personal histories as well as wider cultural histories. But what are the stories we tell ourselves about the kitchen, and how do we first come to it? How do the cookbooks we read shape our lives? Can cooking be a tool for connection in the kitchen and outside of it? In these thirteen original essays, writers consider the possibilities and limitations the kitchen poses. Rachel Roddy traces her life through the cookers she has known; Rebecca May Johnson considers the radical potential of finger food; Ruby Tandoh discovers other definitions of sweetness; Yemisí Aríbisálà remembers a love affair in which food failed as a language; and Julia Turshen considers food’s ties to community. A collection to savour and inspire, In the Kitchen brings together thirteen contemporary writers who brilliantly capture their experiences in the kitchen and beyond.

Date & Time: Wednesday, 17 April 18:00 – 19:30

Venue: Juno Books

The ShefFood Book Club explores the intersections between food, place, people, politics and planet, and asks what they tell us about how to fix our broken food system. 

ShefFood is a cross-sector partnership of organisations across the city formed of local public agencies, businesses, individuals, academic and community organisations committed to working together to create a more sustainable food system for Sheffield.
