One of Australia’s most celebrated chefs, Christine Manfield, will be speaking at an event organised by the Kyogle Writers Festival Committee on Saturday 8 October at 2pm at Uniting Church’s Fellowship Centre, Bloore Street, Kyogle.
Christine has spent her life pursuing – and perfecting – her love of cooking, and her culinary work draws on the tastes and flavours of many cultures.
Her professional life as restauranteur culminated in three highly acclaimed restaurants: Paramount in Sydney, 1993-2000, East@West in London 2003-2005 and Universal, 2007-13.
As an award-winning author, Christine’s books, including A Personal Guide to India and Bhutan, Dessert Divas, Tasting India and Paramount Cooking, have spiced up the lives of keen cooks everywhere. As Nigella Lawson has noted, “Christine woke people up to the flavours and influences from around the world through her food’.
Christine has also led bespoke gastronomic tours over the past twenty years to exotic destinations such as India (where she has visited more than 40 times), Bhutan, France, SE Asia, Italy and South America.
Since relocating to the Tweed coast in 2020, she has been promoting sustainable food production and celebrating the produce of the Northern Rivers region.
Join Christine in Conversation with Southern Cross University food historian, Adele Wessell, as they talk about her cooking career, her travels and her latest book, Indian Cooking Class, published by Simon and Schuster. Christine will also be selling copies of her books at the conclusion of the event.
Tickets are $15/$10 and are available through the Kyogle Writers Festival website, www.kyoglewritersfestival.com and at the door an hour before the event begins. Don’t miss this delicious opportunity!
