Bee Wilson is a multi-award winning food-writer who has written extensively on the history, science and psychology of food and eating. She co-founded the food education charity TastEd which works with primary teachers to give children ‘the opportunity to experience the joy of fresh vegetables and fruits.’ Bee has just written her first cookbook The Secret of Cooking.

Niki Segnit’s original Flavour Thesaurus was a groundbreaking catalogue of flavour combinations that has since been translated into 15 languages. Her follow up, Lateral Cooking, was its ‘method’ companion: tracing the basic culinary categories which are the building blocks for cooking. Now she is back with a plant-led sequel: The Flavour Thesaurus: More Flavours.
