Ruby Tandoh was a finalist on the 2013 series of 'Bake Off', and used that platform to springboard a career far more interesting and diverse than simply being an excellent baker. She has since written two cookbooks and is a columnist for various newspapers and magazines. But her focus has shifted from being purely culinary to speaking out about mental health, eating disorders, sexuality and gender politics - all the while exploring the relationship of all of these things to food. In Eat Up! Ruby has written a manifesto to help you fall in love with food again, looking closely at the joy and pain it can bring us. She steers us away from fad diets and celebrates the happiness derived from eating what we want, when we want. It is a brilliant, insightful, inspiring book from a woman whose voice is synonymous with plain speaking good sense. An evening in her company is not to be missed... Ruby will be in conversation with journalist Wedaeli Chibelushi. This will be a 'Pay What You Can' event (we'll be taking donations on the night). It also marks the first Book Hive event at the stunning Octagon Chapel in central Norwich. Please contact the shop or pop in to reserve your place for this event. Join us at 6:00pm for a 6:30pm start...Read More
Join Ruby Tandoh, Great British Bake-Off finalist, journalist andauthor of Eat Up!, along with Bethany Rutter - writer and podcaster, and social editor at women's plus size fashion brand Navabi - or an empowering evening about reclaiming the female body, from food to fashion. Ruby Tandoh's Eat Up! celebrates the pleasure of eating and takes the guilt out of it, looking at everything from gluttons and gourmets in the movies, to the symbolism of food and sex. Meanwhile, Bethany Rutter's Plus+is a celebration of the daring, experimental and deeply personal world of plus size fashion, which makes it boldly clear that there is no shame in not fitting the conventional ideals of beauty. These two inspiring women will discuss how women can reclaim their bodies for themselves alone, without feeling pressured to conform to society's expectations about women's appetites, what they should and shouldn't eat, their physical appearances and what they wear. ALL TICKETS INCLUDE A COMPLIMENTARY GLASS OF WINE. BUY ONLINE, IN STORE OR BY PHONING 020 7636 1577.Read More
