More with less: From the Pauper's Cookbook to the Naked Chef

Austerity is back on the menu. Thanks to Penguin's culture-changing authors, eaters today need not return to the mock ingredients of the 1940s. Enjoy a demonstration menu of seasonal and sensual food inspired by Penguin authors - from Jocasta Innes to Jamie Oliver.

Cook the Books: Hands-on sessions inspired by the culture-changing Penguin cookery books, led by Shannon Smith, an experienced food and cooking tutor. Menus are based on local, seasonal produce, and use simple methods and everyday equipment.
