About the Event

About the evening:

We are delighted to welcome Prue Leith to FarmED for what promises to be an enlightening, informative and mouth-watering evening!

Join us for an evening in conversation with Prue Leith, where Sally Pullen, FarmED’s Operations Manager, will ask Prue about her life and her most recent book, Bliss on Toast and how she got on with her One Woman Show. This will be followed by an audience Q&A. Afterwards there will be a chance to tuck into a selection of tasty toast recipes from the book, freshly prepared in the FarmED kitchen.

Doors open at 6pm, the talk will begin at 6.15pm.

Each ticket includes a copy of Bliss on Toast and a selection of toast tasters. If you are buying more than one ticket, please specify if you would like multiple copies of Bliss on Toast, or swap for a copy of Prue’s memoir “I’ll Try Anything Once”.

About the book:

What's more comforting and satisfying than toast? And if you top it with a few cleverly paired ingredients, it can be a full meal, not to mention pure bliss.

These 75 recipes for things on toast will help you make quick, delicious and versatile meals year-round - for working-from-home lunches and cosy Sunday suppers, to light bites, indulgent treats or impressive canapes.

Bliss on Toast is as much a toolkit for quick fridge-raids as it is inspiration for seasonal delights. With 82 years' experience of good eating and 60 years of cooking, writing about and judging food, there is no-one who better knows what makes a meal bliss than Dame Prue Leith.

About Prue:

Prue Leith’s career has included her own restaurants, catering and cookery school businesses; she’s been a board director of companies such as British Rail, Halifax, Safeway, Whitbread, Woolworths, and Belmond (ex-Orient Express) Hotels.

She has published eight novels, a memoir, I’ll Do Anything Once (formerly, Relish) and 14 cookbooks. Her latest cookbook, Bliss on Toast, was published by Bloomsbury in 2022.

Prue is probably best known as a judge on the Great British Bake Off and judge of the American equivalent Of Bake Off. She has also been a judge on The Great British Menu and My Kitchen Rules. This year Prue has also embarked on a One Woman Show around the UK called ‘Nothing in Moderation.’

Prue has had a deep involvement with education and the arts: she chaired the first of the companies charged with turning round failing state schools and was Chair of the School Food Trust, responsible for the improvement of school food and food education. She started and led the campaign for contemporary sculpture to be exhibited on the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square. She has been active in many charities and is the Chancellor of Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh. She was an advisor for the Government’s Hospital Food Review.

Among her awards she has a DBE, 12 honorary degrees or fellowships from UK universities, the Veuve Clicquot Businesswoman of the year, and her restaurant, Leith’s, won a Michelin star.

She is married to John Playfair and between them they have 11 grandchildren.
