Adam Gopnik and Fergus Henderson

Adam Gopnik, author and writer for The New Yorker magazine, came to London for the UK launch of his new book. He credits Fergus Henderson for unwittingly giving him the title, The Table Comes First, and the two of them met up at St. John Hotel where the conversation ran from subjects as diverse as farting cows and the worrying proliferation of square plates in France...

Adam Gopnik's The Table Comes First is a witty meditation on life and food. It is subtitled Family, France and the Meaning of Food which indeed sums up his conversation with his friend Fergus Henderson. They share their passion for good food peppered with the occasional dry observation on life and its foibles.
