Kate Humble will be joining the Food & Travel Stage on Sunday, 15 Jan at 1pm to talk about her book 'Homecooked: Recipes from the Farm.'

This will be followed by a book signing at the Stanfords Stand, D72.

Home Cooked is the debut cookbook from Kate Humble and is a celebration of simple, seasonal home cooking full of flavour, comfort and joy. With more than 100 recipes from Kate’s kitchen table, this is food to share from breakfast time to the evening meal – for lazy days, busy weeknights or gatherings, and everything in between. Inspired by Kate’s rural life at home in Wales, and the popularity of Kate’s cooking segments on her TV programmes, this deliciously appealing slice of country life contains many seasonal recipes.

With beautiful photography shot on location by Andrew Montgomery complementing Kate’s storytelling along the way, Home Cooked is a visual feast as well as a delight to read.
