This Thursday, the Oxfam book shop on Marylebone High Street will be holding another of its super foodie nights. This is the charity’s flagship London bookshop and is a treat for philanthropic bibliophiles: new and anitquarian books, CDs, vinyl, videos and DVDs can be found here and in-store events are programmed throughout the year.
Tomorrow night, the writer-chefs Mark Hix (the man behind The Ivy, Le Caprice and writer of various books including fish etc), veggie supreme Celia Brooks Brown and Ian Walker will all be talking of their culinary passions. Nibbles and wine (considering the guest speakers and venue, expect Fair Trade food and quality booze) will help to conjure a convivial atmosphere and will get you in the mood to dip in your pocket for raffle tickets to win signed books and a Borough Market hamper worth £100.
It’s a free event although everyone attending will be asked to make an £8 donation to Oxfam. So, for a foodie and philanthropic evening call 020 7487 3570 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your place.
Marylebone Cooks and Food Writers at Oxfam Marylebone, Thursday 22 February, 7.15pm. For more information about all upcoming in-store events, go to the website here.
