East: Meera Sodha in Conversation with Ruby Tandoh – Wednesday 4th September, 7pm
£5.00 – £27.00
Cookery writer Meera Sodha will be interviewed about her new book East by author and baker Ruby Tandoh at Lutyens & Rubinstein in Notting Hill.
Modern, vibrant, fuss-free food made from British ingredients but with an Eastern slant, East is a must-have whether you’re vegan, vegetarian, or simply want to eat more delicious meat-free food.
Drawing from her ‘New Vegan’ Guardian column, Meera Sodha’s stunning new collection also features plenty of brand-new recipes inspired by a wide range of Asian cuisines. There are noodles, curries, rice dishes, tofu, salads, sides and sweets, all surprisingly easy to make and bursting with exciting flavours. Taking you from India to Indonesia, Singapore to Japan, by way of China, Thailand, and Vietnam, East will show you how to whip up a chard potato and coconut curry and a swede laksa; how to make Kimchi pancakes, delicious dairy free black dal, and chilli tofu. There are sweet potato momos for snacks and unexpected desserts like salted miso brownies and a no-churn Vietnamese coffee icecream.
Meera Sodha is the Guardian’s ‘New Vegan’ columnist and author of Fresh India, which won the Observer Food Monthly Best New Cookbook Award 2017. In 2018 she was given The Guild of Food Writers ‘Cookery Writing Award’ and named the Fortnum & Mason Cookery Writer of the Year for her work in the Guardian. Her first book, Made In India, was a top ten bestseller. Meera Sodha cooks, writes and lives in London with her husband and daughter.
Ruby Tandoh was just 20 when she entered Great British Bake Off in 2013, a Philosophy and Art History student travelling home to study between episodes. The enigmatic young cook quickly impressed with her creative approach to ingredients, her baking dishes often signified by unique flavour combinations. After becoming one of the top three finalists that year, Ruby became one of the UK’s most exciting new names in baking. Ruby has since been a columnist for The Guardian as well as British ELLE, and has published three food books, including two cookbooks, Crumb and Flavour and her most recent bestseller Eat Up!.
