Darina Allen is organising a grandmothers' cooking day on 25th April – a chance for grandparents to share their cooking skills with their grandchildren. Details here.
Prior to the presentation I caught up with Chris Foulkes and Carrie Seagrave, who are working on Jasper Morris' book on Burgundy that is due out in October. It will cover all of Burgundy with the exception of the Beaujolais.
