Cooking the Books: The Waiter by Matias Faldbakken (11 Jul 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: The Waiter by Matias Faldbakken
Welcome to The Hills, Oslo’s most esteemed restaurant, an institution stewed in tradition and clinging to the faded grandeur of old Europe.
A neurotic waiter tends to the desires of his clientele. Aristocrats and artistes, wealthy widows and roguish entrepreneurs, he observes all their dramas with a wit as sharp as a filleting knife.
At table ten sits the impeccable Mr Graham, impatiently awaiting a special guest. When at last she arrives – young, beautiful, mysterious – she will prove to be a challenging new flavour, threatening both our waiter’s nerves, and the delicately balanced ingredients of the room.
