I regularly do talks, speeches, readings and other events, both for the public and bespoke for corporate clients, across the UK and sometimes internationally. Check back here to see if I’ve added any near you!
My new Book, Pie Fidelity, is published on 4th April. Here’s the blurb:
In Britain, we have always had an awkward relationship with food. We’ve been told for so long that we are terrible cooks and yet according to a recent YouGov survey, our traditional food and drink are more important than the monarchy and at least as significant as our landscape and national monuments in defining a collective notion of who we are. Taking nine archetypically British dishes – Pie and Peas, A Cheese Sandwich, Fish and Chips, Spag Bol, Devonshire Cream Tea, Curry, The Full English, The Sunday Roast and a Crumble with Custard – and examining them in their perfect context, Pete Brown reveals just how fundamental food is to our sense of identity, perhaps even our sense of pride, and the ways in which we understand our place in the world.
The book has already been picked by The Times as one of its top non-fiction books to watch in 2019. At this event, I’ll be in conversation about it with legendary food and drink publisher Jo Copestick. Tickets available on the door.
