About the event

Small Fires is the thrillingly original book that is shaking up the food writing scene and challenging how we think about cooking and the kitchen. Why do we cook? Is it just to feed ourselves and others? Or is there something more revolutionary going on? To celebrate it's release to paperback, Manningtree Arts is thrilled to welcome Rebecca in conversation with Guardian and New Statesman food journalist, writer and winner of the 'Fortnum & Mason Food Book of the Year', Felicity Cloake. 

Join us for an evening of delicious dialogue and fascinating insights into the world of food writing.

REBECCA MAY JOHNSON has published essays, reviews and nonfiction with Granta, Times Literary Supplement and Daunt Books Publishing, among others, and is an editor at the trailblazing food publication Vittles. Small Fires is her first book.

FELICITY CLOAKE is the award-winning author of the Guardian’s long-running ‘How to Make the Perfect’ series and the New Statesman’s food column. In 2016 she was named Fortnum & Mason Cookery Writer of the Year. She is the author of six cookery books, Perfect, Perfect Host, Perfect Too, the André Simon-shortlisted The A-Z of Eating and One More Croissant for the Road. Her new book, Red Sauce Brown Sauce, which follows her adventures, by bicycle, in an expedition to uncover the great British breakfast, won the 2023 Fortnum & Mason Food Book of the Year.
