Cookbook Confidential: An Evening with Sabrina Ghayour

Wednesday 4th May 2016 7pm - 8:30pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Signing, Chargeable Event

Join Sabrina Ghayour, award-winning author of the bestselling Persiana, as she talks food, cooking and her eagerly anticipated new book Sirocco.  Discover what fuels Sabrina’s passion for food, the inspiration behind her new book and what’s up next for one of today’s most exciting voices in food.


Named ‘Rising Star of 2014’, ‘The Golden Girl of Persian Cookery’ by The Observer, and as one of ‘1000 Most Influential People in London’ by The London Evening Standard, Sabrina is an Iranian-born self-taught cook, author, food writer and host of the hugely popular ‘Sabrina’s Kitchen’ Supper Club in London.


Sabrina’s debut cookbook Persiana: Recipes from the Middle East and beyond topped the bestseller lists, received The Observer Food Monthly’s ‘Best New Cookbook 2014’ award and won Food and Travel Magazine's ‘Best Cookbook of the Year 2015’. Persiana was the first cookbook to be shortlisted for Waterstones’ ‘Book of the Year’ and the Bookseller Awards.

This opening conversation in the Cookbook Confidential series was a fascinating insight into Sabrina's life and inspiration leading up to her new book, 'Sirocco'. Brilliantly chaired by Julia Leonard, the evening flew by and there were many laughs and a few poignant moments, especially when Sabrina recalled personal moments along the way, particularly her supper club experiences, which have made her name. The venue, a flexible calm space in a busy part of the city, was packed full of wonderful foodies, all eager to know more and feel nourished by Sabrina's presence; we weren't disappointed and the book is a worthy successor to the fabulous debut 'Persiana'.
