Cooking the Books Dinner Parties – Series 2. Bondi, Sydney. May 2018

By popular demand, Christine Manfield and Julie Gibbs are joining forces once again to pay tribute to their favourite food heroes. These intimate dinners will be hosted across 4 consecutive Tuesdays in May 2018 at one of our favourite Sydney seaside restaurants.

Each menu will be made up of classic recipes – often with a Manfield twist – from the seminal cookbooks of each writer. The dinner conversation will highlight their influence on the way we cook today. If you love a lively dinner and share a passion for books, please join us.

Places are limited.
