Claudia Roden reads and talks about her books with Sally McKenna, McKenna's Guides.
The word ‘icon’ is perhaps overused in today’s world, but its use is absolutely justified in the case of food writer, Claudia Roden. Claudia’s books are treasured by her many admirers and she has influenced countless cooks with the elegant words she uses in a desire to evoke a lost heritage.
Sally McKenna is a photographer, cookery editor, film-maker and the publisher of the McKennas' Guides, working from her office in West Cork. Her book Extreme Greens: Understanding Seaweed was described by BBC Radio 4’s The Food Programme as “a new bible for seaweed cookery”. Winner of the first ever André Simon Special Award, she is currently working with Collins on a new guidebook to the whole of Ireland to be published in spring 2018.
This should be a charming conversation between two passionate and highly accomplished food writers.
