One of our finest restaurateurs, writers and broadcasters on food, Prue Leith is also a campaigner determined to promote healthy food. Indeed, she describes the four years she spent as chair of the School Food Trust as the most important of her career. She talks about the importance of Slow Food, sustainability, food as pleasure and the importance of teaching children to cook. The full list of Festival of Ideas events at Big Green Week is here.

As a cook, restaurateur, food writer and businesswoman, Prue Leith has played a key role in the revolution of Britain’s eating habits since the Sixties. In 1995, having published twelve cookbooks, she gave up writing about food to concentrate on fiction. She has published five novels, the latest of which is A Serving of Scandal. Her biography Relish: My Life on a Plate was published in 2012. Visit her website at www.prue-leith.com.
