Elizabeth David: A Celebration

  • Spike Island Cafe 133 Cumberland Road Bristol, England, BS1 6UX United Kingdom (map)

This event is part of the 2018 Bristol Food Connections festival – a citywide celebration of the fantastic, varied and delicious food culture in our city. 

Elizabeth David was a legendary British food and cookery writer. During the mid-twentieth century she has a huge influence on British home cooking, reinvigorating and revitalising the public's passion for cooking with her books about traditional Mediterranean dishes. 

You will enjoy a mouthwatering four course dinner cooked by some of Bristol's finest chefs: Barny Haughton, Stuart Seth, and Spike Island Cafe's own, Robert Leeburn. Over the meal, you'll explore Elizabeth David's legacy in British cooking and look forward to the future of British cooking as the chefs cook up some of David's most iconic dishes. There will be veggie options available, too – please email spike@cookingco.co.uk when you make your booking to let them know if you're a vegetarian – otherwise they won't be able to cater for you! 

The meal is a fundraiser to raise money for Square Food Foundation – Bristol's cookery school and community kitchen, where people from all walks of life are taught to cook good food from scratch. There will be a raffle on the night to raise further funds. 

Menu TBC but it's going to be amazing!

Tickets are £40, and available through Wriggle
