Much like a buffet table you can’t keep yourself from returning to, The Dinner Table will entice foodies to keep coming back for extra helpings! With over 700 pages dishing up some of the finest food writing you could hope to be served, this gastronomic glory boasts 100 Michelin-class features, as compiled by award-winning writers Kate Young and Ella Risbridger.

“Consider this an invitation to dinner. Not just dinner though: a dinner party, and ideally — if we’ve done this right — the best dinner party of your life.” So begins a book that brings together a diverse range of source material (novels, poems, cookbooks, food magazines and newsletters) and writers, from novelists and poets, to cooks and thinkers. To give you a sense of its breadth, contributors include Salman Rushdie, Nigella Lawson, Mrs Beeton, Angela Carter, Virginia Woolf, Sarah Waters, Maya Angelou, Jane Austen and James Joyce.

Spanning centuries and subject — from butter and eggs, to whopping wedding feasts — The Dinner Table is a splendid smorgasbord of a book. As such, it’s the ideal gift for foodies, especially those who also love literature.
