Prue Leith   Prue: My All-Time Favourite Recipes

Prue Leith draws on a life-long passion for food with a hundred recipes from her own kitchen table. These are delicious, fuss-free dishes that Prue has cooked countless times for family and friends. They include quick-to-whip-up suppers and dinner party showstoppers, lazy leftovers and exciting combinations. 

This is Prue's first cookery book in twenty-five years, and she has woven intimate and witty stories from her life around many of the recipes. 

Founder of the renowned Leith's cookery school, restauranteur, caterer, teacher, TV cook, journalist and judge of The Great British Bake Off, Prue Leith has been at the forefront of the British food scene for nearly six decades. She will join us to speak about her latest book and stellar career in conversation with Jason Goodwin.

This Year's Events

Feedback

I did so enjoy being with you and doing my stuff. I hope to see you again, though I am so busy I don't seem to have time for writing much at present! I am
sure your festival will go from strength to strength….

Feedback From 2016 Festival

All of us in the Hardy Society were very positive about 'our' first night and the subsequent events. I thought Tony's event with Rachel and Dinah worked very well with interesting conversations from the both of the women.

You and Paul must be very happy with the positive way Dorchester people are continuing to embrace the Festival, and in impressively increasing numbers. Congratulations to both of you.

Next year's dates are already in our diaries and we are looking forward to meeting up with you soon to discuss our involvement.

Very well organised, excellent variety in terms of author and presentation. Favourite was Tony Robinson, but I also really enjoyed Julia Shaw (memory very thought provoking), Richard Dannatt (good solid start to festival) JOHN Wright (local and good humour) Alison Weir (such research and knowledge) and Victoria Hislop (novel in a different style).

Feedback From 2016 Festival

I was particularly delighted by how many of the audience seemed to know and appreciate my work. As you know, authors are solitary creatures - mostly - and for me at least it's a real pleasure to have good reason to leave my work-room (a shed in the garden with a too-seductive view of the Cambrians) and meet and talk with readers and fellow writers (not forgetting that many of us are both).

I thoroughly enjoyed all six events I attended and would have done many more if my time had allowed. Congratulations to all the people involved for a very well organised event. I am most certainly looking forward to next year's events calendar- the dates are already in my diary.
