Cooking the Books: Dirt by Bill Buford (11 Jan 2024)
We have teamed up with Kemps Bookstore in the Market place here in Malton to bring you a monthly book club with a difference!
Each month Jo Hardy from Kemps selects a book that has a foodie vibe and while Jo discusses and reviews the book and opens the discussion Gilly Robinson, owner, and head tutor here at The Cooks Place will then create two dishes mentioned in the text. Relax and enjoy as Gilly cooks and demonstrates how to make the dishes, which you eat along with a glass of something.
Cooking the Books is a great way to bring your love of books and cooking together. A wonderful night out for a group of book lovers or even on your own, to chat, eat and just a great excuse to read a book!
A friendly, welcoming atmosphere awaits.
The books are available to purchase from Kemps, 11 Market Place, Malton YO17 7LP.
This month: Dirt by Bill Buford
What does it take to master French cooking? This is the question that drives Bill Buford to abandon his perfectly happy life in New York City and (with his wife and three-year-old twin sons in tow) move to Lyon, the so-called gastronomic capital of France.
But what was meant to be six months in a new city turns into a wild five-year odyssey. As Buford apprentices at Lyon’s best boulangerie, studies at a legendary culinary school and cooks at a storied Michelin-starred restaurant, he discoveries the true grit, precision and passion of the French kitchen.
