Pull up a chair to Skye McAlpine’s delightfully aspirational and unabashedly romantic table. Toppings will design a delicious Venetian-inspired menu from her glorious new book, A Table Full of Love and turn the bookshop into a restaurant for the evening. Skye will treat you to a live cookery demo over pudding and chat to you all at your tables. You will enjoy an apéritif, three courses with wine and your ticket also includes a copy of the new book.
With Skye’s recipes, engaging writing and stylish photography, this cookbook invites us to celebrate love, in all its forms, through the making and sharing of food – and explores the connection between food and love. It’s both a recipe book and a celebration of the many different love stories in our lives.
Brimming over with deliciousness – baked fennel and burrata gratin to cheer a friend up when they’re low, to roast duck legs and winter citrus for date nights, Nutella laced birthday cake for children’s birthday parties, mimosa truffles to show someone that you care and you’re thinking of them, or baked eggs with spinach and gorgonzola for an indulgent solo week-night supper – this is a book that will inspire you to cook not because you feel you should, but because you’ll find that doing so makes you – and those around you happy.
