Kitchen Person: Notes on Cooking and Eating - Rachel Cooke
The author Rachel Cooke will be in discussion with the journalist Bee Wilson and analyst Josh Cohen at our in-house event on the 29th of November. Find out more here.
In 2009, Rachel Cooke started a monthly column for The Observer on cooking and eating: here are her fifty best.
In Kitchen Person, unfussy eater Rachel Cooke chronicles several food upheavals since then: new TV cooks, Brexit, viral recipes, the home delivery phenomenon, and the global pandemic. She journeys from her childhood in Sheffield with Henderson's relish and Granny's lamb chops, to a job interviewing top chefs and eating in fancy restaurants, to learning to shop and cook well herself, all the time growing more knowledgeable and opinionated about food.
