Day 11 – Christmas 2022

This is the eleventh day of the Advent Calendar 2022. Check out the special offer below – this went live on Sunday 11th December 2022:

Win a Signed copy of Victory in the Kitchen by Dr Annie Gray and Two Free tickets to her talk!

Dr Annie Gray: Serving Winston – The Life and Times of Georgina Landemare, Churchill’s Longest Serving Cook

Dr Annie Gray is one of Britain’s leading food historians. She is a panelist on BBC Radio 4’s The Kitchen Cabinet and appears on TV, including The Victorian Bakers and food programmes with Nigel Slater, Heston Blumenthal and James Martin. Her new talk will be at Otley Courthouse on Friday 16th December, looking at the life and times of Georgina Landemare.

Georgina Landemare was the longest serving cook for Churchill across Downing Street, Chequers and Chartwell. The talk will cover her life and career along with the food she cooked, the impact of rationing at No. 10, and the relationship she had with Britain’s most famous politician. The talk is both a celebration of a determined cook, and a reminder that behind every great man lies a woman who can make a mean custard.

In the build-up to the talk, we’ll be giving away TWO FREE TICKETS as well as a signed copy of her fabulous book about Landemare called Victory in the Kitchen: The Life of Churchill’s Cook.

If you miss out on this prize then fear not, we’ll be selling copies of the book at the talk, and she’ll be more than happy to sign them! Book your tickets here:
