'A gorgeous collection: if you savour words quite as much as food, this is for you!' NIGELLA LAWSON

A deliciously moreish collection of the finest pieces of writing on food.

In this big, beautiful anthology, award-winning writers Kate Young and Ella Risbridger present you with their ultimate fantasy dinner party. Here you’ll find over 100 authors, cooks and poets, from Laurie Colwin, Salman Rushdie and Jack Underwood, to Rachel Roddy, Audre Lorde and Nigella Lawson.

The individual pieces in The Dinner Table each have something to say to their neighbours on either side; just like a real-life dinner party, the collection is designed to flow from one topic to the next. You’ll discover old friends as well as new, discussing eggs, bread, fridge-raid suppers, wedding feasts and much, much more.

With pieces taken from newspapers and novels, magazines and memoirs, private letters and public statements, you can dip into The Dinner Table for one piece or twenty. Pop in for a drink, or stay until the tables are cleared away. Stay for coffee, and stay for breakfast.
