Books for Cooks – Acclaimed authors lined up for events with Forum Books

Appetite columnist Helen Stanton – owner of Forum Books in Corbridge, The Bound in Whitley Bay and The Accidental Bookshop in Alnwick – has put together a stellar line-up of food author events in the coming weeks.

First, Diana Henry is heading to Newcastle’s Biscuit Factory on September 13 for an evening of food and conversation to celebrate the new edition of Roast Figs, Sugar Snow. Twenty years after publication, this refreshed edition includes new recipes and an introduction from Nigel Slater. Full of comforting delights from cold-weather climes – from the ski slopes of Italy, to the coffee houses of Vienna and Budapest, the rural reaches of New England and beyond – these recipes will bring warmth to your heart as well as your home.

Rebecca May Johnson will also be at The Biscuit Factory on September 20, where she’ll be talking about the new edition of Small Fires – a thrillingly original book that is shaking up the food writing scene and challenging how we think about cooking and the kitchen. See

There’s lots more to come too, including events with Emma Henry, Ella Risbridger, Kate Young and the legendary Rick Stein. Follow Forum Books on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram – and keep an eye on the TicketSource listings.
