Food speaks to our personal history as well as wider cultural histories. But what are the stories we tell ourselves about the kitchen, and how do we first come to it? How do the cookbooks we read shape us? Can cooking be a tool for connection in the kitchen and outside of it? A collection to savour and inspire, 'In the Kitchen' brings together 13 contemporary writers whose work brilliantly explores food, capturing their reflections on their culinary experiences in the kitchen and beyond.
