And here we are, the great event in London is on: join the Chiswick Cookbook Festival for the ultimate celebration of cookbooks and food in the heart of west London.
A variety of magnificent locations will host some of the world’s finest chefs and cooks, sharing their top tips, favourite recipes, signature dishes and incredible knowledge.
Expect talks, chef demos, hands-on workshops, cooking, eating and plenty of festival fun.
The festival runs alongside the much respected and enjoyed Chiswick Book Festival and all proceeds from both events go to charity.
Some of the renowned chefs from the last edition: John Torode, Ella Mills
(Deliciously Ella), Melissa Helmsley, Jack Monroe with City Harvest, Jo
Pratt, Niki Segnit (The Flavour Thesaurus), Katie and Giancarlo Caldesi
from La Cucina Caldesi, Silla Bjerrum and Mallika Basu.
They discussed their published work, food and culinary experiences
alongside tastings prepared by our experienced chefs.
Founded and chaired by Lucy Cufflin, Jo Pratt and Fran Warde. They are
supported by a committee of highly experienced food appreciators from
Chiswick. Everyone involved is a volunteer. The event is sponsored by As
See you there!

“As I look at the spines of the cookbooks piled high on my kitchen shelves, the pages from within them come alive as I remember what I cooked from each and when. Flashes of family gatherings over a hearty stew, drinks with finger food far too big and the smell of fresh bread in my oven. It is so easy these days to click online to find a recipe in an instant but nothing beats turning the page of a good cookbook to be truly inspired.
The joy of immersing oneself into the whole story of a recipe, to understand where it came from and getting to know the author through their food is so inspiring. That’s why we had the idea to create the first ever Cookbook Festival – so we can bring
cookery books to life. We hope you will join us and meet the authors, taste
their recipes, take part in a workshop or simply sit back and enjoy the food”
Lucy Cufflin, Chair of the Cookbook Festival organising committee.
