The New Food Writing: an evening with Caroline Eden & Louise Gray

Louise has become a friend of mine this past year, since attending her book launch of The Ethical Carnivore and sharing a weekend of processing geese for Christmas on a small farm in Angus – I’m very much looking forward to this event on Wednesday. Thought it might also be of interest to other foodie writer with a concern for the environment and ethical production and consumption issues… 

Golden Hare Books are welcoming two fantastic local authors to their Edinburgh shop on Wednesday 8th November. Caroline Eden and Louise Gray, both culinary experts who use food writing to exemplify both the issues and wonders of our world. Caroline, a travel journalist and co-author of Samarkand: Recipes and Stories from Central Asia uses food to portray places and people across the world, and Louise writes about food to highlight damage to the shared environment and the importance of more ethical lifestyles.

What makes good food writing? Should it have a purpose beyond showing off tasty food?

Caroline and Louise will be in conversation at the Golden Hare to discuss these questions and the uses and future of food writing. Both winners of the Guild of Food Writers Awards, this is a very special opportunity to see two of the country’s most talented food writers talk about what they know and love best.

Snacks and wine will be served.

Tickets cost £3 each to help cover costs of putting on this fantastic event – the ticket price is fully redeemable against any book in the shop on the evening of 8th October.
