Dr Annie Gray: Serving Winston - The Life and Times of Georgina Landemare - Churchill's longest serving cook

Dates and times

30 Apr 2021 7:30pm

Show Map

Otley Courthouse

Courthouse Street, Leeds, LS21 3AN

Dr Annie Gray is one of Britain's leading food historians. She is a panellist on BBC Radio 4's The Kitchen Cabinet and appears on TV, including The Victorian Bakers and food programmes with Nigel Slater, Heston Blumenthal and James Martin.

Georgina Landemare was the longest serving cook for Churchill across Downing Street, Chequers and Chartwell. The talk will cover her life and career along with the food she cooked, the impact of rationing at No. 10, and the relationship she had with her illustrious employers.

The talk is both a celebration of a determined cook, and a reminder that behind every great man lies a woman who can make a mean custard.

In anticipation of this event please could you consider buying a signed copy of Annie's book through Kirstie at Fox Lane, who would have been doing book sales at the original date of the show, in order to help support small businesses.
