ROSE PRINCE

We were delighted to welcome Rose Prince as a guest on the 18th March 2018

Rose Prince is a food writer, author, cook and activist.  She contributes regularly to BBC Radio 4’s Food programme and was a judge for its Food and Farming Awards in 2009. She was the winner of the Glenfiddich food and drink awards in 2001 and in 2009 was named by Vogue magazine as one of the most inspirational women in Britain.

She’s also really passionate about her subject and speaks with an authentic voice about the food she loves and the ingredients she’s addicted to.  Remarkably, she’s also willing to share her sources with others as we discovered when we joined her for lunch to bash out the menu for her guest chef appearance here at Bread and Flowers.

She published a new book recently; ‘Dinner & Party; Gatherings, Suppers, Feasts’, which apart from being full of great recipes, contains plenty of tips on menus and timings for the reader to follow when contemplating their own gathering of friends.
