Ticket price

Jane Grigson is still regarded as one of the UK’s most admired and influential food writers. Her eloquent and meticulously researched writing placed food in its literary and historical context, in a manner that few others achieved. On the 25th anniversary of her death, join Sophie Grigson, Geraldene Holt and Paul Bailey to explore the enduring impact of her work.

Sophie Grigson, herself a respected food writer and broadcaster, has published 15 books, most recently My Kitchen Table, and has won many awards including the Caroline Walker Prize for her media work and the Guild of Food Writers Cookery Journalist of the Year Award.

Holt is an internationally acclaimed food writer. The distinguished American author M F K Fisher wrote: ‘I can think of only three English women who write even comparably well about a common subject, food. They are, of course, Elizabeth David, Jane Grigson and Geraldene Holt.’

Bailey, who was a close friend of Jane Grigson, has written 17 novels and biographies and many plays for radio and television. He is a fellow of the Royal Society of Literature and winner of the Authors’ Club First Novel Award, the E.M. Forster Award, and the George Orwell Prize.

The session is part of a series organised by Oxford Gastronomica, Oxford Brookes University’s centre for food and cultural studies.

In association with the Savoy, festival London hotel partner.
