Giles Coren at Allium

Restaurant critic of The Times (and recent on-the-scene Olympics reporter), Giles Coren writes with huge wit and candour. In 2005, he was named Food and Drink Writer of the Year, published his first (and last) novel, Winkler and began presenting The F-Word on Channel 4 with Gordon Ramsay. Since then, he has presented a documentary series on biotechnology in the food chain (Animal Farm), a polemical film about the obesity crisis (Tax the Fat), and several series of The Supersizers Go…with Sue Perkins. He also wrote Anger Management for Beginners. He’ll be talking about his latest book How To Eat Out, something that has taken him a lifetime to master. It doesn’t matter if it’s fish and chips, takeaway pizza, a medieval banquet or a slap-up nosh at the Hotel de Posh, there is always a right way and wrong way to do it, and Coren will tell you how, and be signing copies of the book after the event.
£8.50 event only
£19.95 per person including a glass of wine at the signing followed by a two-course dinner in Allium including another glass of wine.
