An Evening with Alastair Sawday

20th October, 2021, Steyning Cricket Club

A Cookery Author Supper with Camilla Stephens

We are really pleased to welcome the marvellous Camilla Stephens to the Steyning & District Food & Drink Festival. Camilla is the founder of the acclaimed locally based success story Higgidy Pies. She trained as a cook at Leith’s School of Food and Wine and worked for a time as head of food development for Starbucks UK before leaving to follow her dreams and start her own business – Higgidy.

In her first cookery book, Higgidy:The Cookbook, Camilla introduced excitingly delicious recipes for much more than just pies, and now she has produced  Higgidy – The Veggie Cookbook: 120 glorious recipes for Vegetarians and Vegans, a mouth-watering and inspiring collection of recipes very definitely not just for vegetarians, but for anyone who enjoys fresh flavours!

This will be a great evening, with scrumptious food cooked by the Sussex Produce Chef followed by an fascinating interview with Camilla, who’ll share anecdotes, tips and stories from her inspirational career.

We were blessed with blue skies so the bookshop back garden was the venue for today's signing for Julia Donaldson's beautiful new book The Oak Tree. Julia and illustrator Victoria Sandoy @victoriasand met fans young and old and signed hundreds of books! Children munched on Sara's homemade Oak Leaf shaped biscuits, and joined in with making leaf crowns. Thanks to Penelope from @scholastic_uk for helping out and to Malcolm and his trusty guitar providing the tunes, and thanks to all who travelled from far and wide to today's event! #juliadonaldson #theoaktree #choosebookshops
