Join award-winning chef and broadcaster Andi Oliver, in conversation with Jay Rayner to celebrate the publication of her long-awaited first cookbook The Pepperpot Diaries: Stories from My Caribbean Table.
The ingredients we use in Caribbean cookery tell a story - and it's a huge swirling tale…
In The Pepperpot Diaries, discover a story of food that delves into the melting pot of cultural influences, history and rich heritage that has uniquely shaped traditional and contemporary Caribbean cooking. Andi explores how influences from as far as India, Spain, the Americas, Africa, China, Portugal, Britain, France, and from the indigenous inhabitants – the Taino, the Arawaks, the Caribs - make this an endlessly exciting and truly global cuisine.
Through diary entries and stunning photography taken during her travels in Antigua, Andi shares a deeply personal journey reconnecting with the food she grew up eating, and the flavours and ingredients that run through her heart and soul. This unique virtual event will take you on an exploration of identity and heritage, and the deep-rooted connection between food and place. Andi and Jay will delve into the range of sumptuous recipes, from easy midweek meals like quick stews and light curries, and joyful big-pot dishes, slow cooked and layered with flavour, to show-stopping weekend and celebration meals and fabulous desserts that will bring friends and family together. This event, and Andi’s book has something for everyone. Be sure not to miss it!
