Mr Wilkinsons Simply Dressed Salads

Event: Mr Wilkinson’s Simply Dressed Salads – a conversation with Matt Wilkinson 31 March

Matt Wilkinson, the executive chef at Pope Joan,  is one of our favourite (and cheekiest) local chefs and we’ve managed to steal him away from his kitchen for an hour or two next week!

His first book Mr Wilkinson’s Favourite Vegetables (one of our favourite books for 2013) was a runner up for the prestigious IACP Julia Child award in 2014.

His new book Mr Wilkinson’s Simply Dressed Salads, in our view, will be a contender for the big cookbook prizes this year.

Why? Because it’s great casual food, beautifully, yet simply presented that screams “Eat Me”; all in a gorgeous quirky design, richly illustrated with real and personal photographs.

Now you might say “Salads are only for Summer”, but Matt will prove you wrong.  Matt’s salads are grouped seasonally with recipes for the whole year.  Throughout, there are extra recipes for garnishes and additions to salads that make all the difference.  Trust us – you won’t look at salads the same way again!

Matt’s writing has all the hallmarks of his birthplace – Yorkshire; dry, witty personal, slightly salty and honest. We loved reading it and have also loved cooking from it!

Coming from a classical and fine dining background, Matt champions local and passionate producers as well as his home grown veg. Throughout the book Matt shares a wealth of practical professional experience with his guides to dressings and views on ‘salad design’.

We’ll be serving up a number of fabulous tastes from the book whilst we have a chat to Matt ‘unplugged’ about his new book, his love for salads and vegetables and his forthright views on food and it’s producers.

Please join us for an intimate, fun & tasty evening!
