Talking of Food is a magazine website set up by a group of people who love not only food but also the diversity of its culture. It is not bound by ideology or momentary fads but has an open mind towards opposing views. Its contributors are often experts in their field and discuss wide ranging subjects such as antibiotics in the food-chain, the opposing arguments on GM food or the future of food. On a lighter note see how they make noodles in China or follow Elisabeth Luard's classic series on European Peasant Cookery.

New in Food in Literature

Helen begins Food in Literature: Part 13, with Shuggie Bain, the 2020 Booker Prize winning novel by Douglas Stuart.


Write a cookbook in a day? Well, in 2011, "Novel in a Day" was set up by a member of the Scrivener forum and has run annually ever since. This year, it was decided to attempt a non-fiction genre and a cookbook was chosen… After a long delay, there are three more new "stories" to listen to.

New in Book Readings

Two new entries in Book Readings. Allegra McEvedy reads her favourite extracts from Claudia Roden's beautiful new book Med, and Alec Lobrano reads extracts from his "coming of age story", My Place at the Table.
