I cannot tell you how [insert pleased, excited or thrilled here] I am that chef Mark Best has accepted our invitation to speak at Food & Words 2017.
 
Actually, he’s a man of few words, but he’s not short of an opinion and we’re very happy that he will air one or two of them in conversation, as well as talk about his work with on the Genting and World Dreams cruise ships (overseeing 2000 chefs), his books Marque; A Culinary Adventure and Best Kitchen Basics and his photography.
 
If you’ve read any of Sam Vincent’s features in The Monthly, you’ll know this guy can tell a compelling story. As a farmer-writer, he writes about the land and food production in the practical voice of the farmer, but with a writer’s sensibility.
 
Can’t quite believe that photographer Luisa Brimble talked her creative partner chef Sarah Glover into changing her Italian travel plans in order to speak at Food & Words, but we’re very glad she did. This dynamic duo ran a successful Kickstarter campaign to self-publish their cookbook Wild, which we’ll get to see ahead of its launch.
 
Lisa Goldberg, Merelyn Chalmers and Natalya Eskin, three members of the Monday Morning Cooking Club, will tell us about their unique collaborative cooking project that’s all about sisterhood, heirloom recipes and community.
 
There are more speakers to come. Blame the slow release of names on Barbara’s schedule (or time management issues), but we promise, we’re almost there. We’re working on a session on food in fiction and have some terrific authors poised to take part.
 
 
Tickets are available to purchase and are already selling steadily, so don’t leave off buying yours for too long. We would love to have you join us on their very special day.
