Elizabeth Luard, food writer, journalist and broadcaster
Elisabeth Luard is a food writer, journalist and broadcaster whose attitude to cookery is both scholarly and fun. She has written twenty-four books. Their subjects range from truffles to tortillas. Their settings are as diverse as a cortijo in Andalucia and a farmhouse in Wales. A trained artist, she never travels without her sketchbook and often illustrates her own work. Elisabeth’s food memoir, Squirrel Pie, recounts some of her experiences at stoves and tables around the world. In her talk this evening she’ll no doubt invite us to accompany her to the birthplace of dishes such as Boston bean-pot, Hawaiian poke, Cretan bouboutie and Sardinian lemon macaroons.
