Time: The Missing Ingredient
Time is an invisible ingredient in the food we make and cook. It is this idea which food writer Jenny Linford explores in her groundbreaking, wide-ranging book The Missing Ingredient, a work described by Bee Wilson in her Sunday Times review as ‘an eloquent plea to see the creation and consumption of good food as something more than an annoying interruption’. From the speed required to cook fish well or the time invested in making sourdough, time is an important factor in food. Jenny will discuss the role of time in creating food and flavour with a panel of artisan food producers and including Jonny Crickmore of Fen Farm Dairy, Emma Wilkins of Hodmedods and food and travel writer Christine Smallwood, while the audience get to sample tasters for additional enlightenment.
