Valentine Warner joins our Grief at the Kitchen Table online event to discuss The Consolation of Food (2019), a collection of stories about life and death, seasoned with recipes.

The book’s 75 recipes are organised chronologically. Each recognises the positive energy that foraging for food or fishing for ingredients can create. Valentine also considers how cooking itself can soothe the soul and lift our spirits, so necessary in times of grief and sadness. In essence, The Consolation of Food is about the life-affirming joy of cooking, eating and sharing good food.

Valentine is a chef, broadcaster and author of six cookbooks including The Good Table: Adventures In and Around My Kitchen. His TV career begin with 2008’s What to Eat Now, and subsequent shows include Valentine Warner: Coast to Coast, Great British Food Revival, and Country Show Cook Off.

Valentine has also written for the Times, Country File, Great British Food, Delicious, Waitrose Food Illustrated and Olive magazine.

Praise for The Consolation of Food: ‘Valentine Warner presents a collection of personal stories, seasoned with recipes, to read and make in both happy and troubled times; a book of ‘comfort’ food in the truest sense of the word’ (Telegraph).
