Tuscany has never been closer to King’s Cross. Claudia Roden, a sell-out speaker at the festival with The Food of Spain in 2012, returns to talk about an important update of her classic The Food of Italy, 25 years after it was first published. The history of Italian-Jewish cooking will be a highlight of Roden’s presentation of this appetising culinary tour of Italy.

In association with Gefiltefest
