Travels in Southern England – The Folkestone Book Festival – Wednesday 25 November

An Italian Journey
At 7.30 pm Wednesday writer and publisher, Alessandro Gallenzi, translator, Franca Simpson, and cookbook writer Claudia Roden took part in a discussion on Italian food, language and culture chaired by Lennox Morrison. I was particularly taken by Claudia Roden’s remark that cooking is history and landscape in a saucepan. After the conversation we retired to the Quarterhouse’s upstairs bar to examine their published books and where some delicious Italian cuisine awaited us to sample. It was a most convivial evening.
