Victory in the Kitchen: The Life of Churchill’s CookThe Assembly Rooms - Buxton Crescent Hotelbutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

Victory in the Kitchen is a culinary biography: a life lived through food, ranging from rural Berkshire to wartime London, via Belle Epoque Paris and prohibition-era New York.

Through one eager eater, Winston Churchill, and one skilled cook, Georgina Landemare, Annie Gray contextualises twentieth century food through two figures who were both intimately involved with it. Recipes include Georgina’s German Kougelhof, Curried Brains, macaroons, Boodles Orange, Mousse de Maple and ‘Chocolat Cake Good’.

Our musical accompaniment to this event will reference Myra Hess’s wartime concerts through the London Blitz.

Includes a cup of tea.
