Book signing with Ed Balls

Thursday 16 September, 5.30pm - 6.30pm

Chapters café, lower ground floor

Jarrold is delighted to welcome Ed Balls: former Cabinet Minister and economist, now familiar as a former Strictly Come Dancing contestant, winner of Celebrity Best Home Cook, writer, broadcaster and former chairman of Norwich City F.C.

Join us in celebration of Ed’s new book, Appetite: A Memoir in recipes of family and food. Appetite is a memoir with a twist: each chapter is a recipe that tells a story. Ed Balls was just three weeks old when he tried his first meal in 1967: pureed roast beef and Yorkshire pudding. From that moment on he was hooked on food.

Taught to cook by his mother, Ed's now passing her wisdom on to his own kids as they start to fly the nest. Reflecting on his life in recipes, Ed takes us from his grandma's shepherd's pie to his first trip to a restaurant in the 1970s (and ordering an orange juice as a starter); from the inner workings of Westminster to the pressures of parenting. This is a collection of the meals he loves most, and the memories they bring back. The world may have changed since 1967, but the best recipes last a lifetime. Appetite is a celebration of love, family, and really good food.

Booking not essential but recommended:
To secure a place in the signing queue, please email us to purchase a copy of the book in advance (£16.99 RRP).

Once purchased, your book will be available for collection from the Book Department, lower ground, on Thursday 16 September.
