A talk and a tea at 40winks hotel

“There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea.” Henry James

On Saturday 7th of February journalist and celebrity interviewer Liz Hoggard (of The Times and Evening Standard) will be talking to me about my latest book, MsMarmitelover's Secret Tea Party, and my next two books (V is for Vegan and Get Started in Food Writing). 
This is the first in a monthly series of tea time salons which take place at a gorgeous Queen Anne townhouse hotel, 40 winks, named by Vogue as "the most beautiful small hotel in the world". This hotel is designed and run by celebrated interior designer David Carter and is located in Mile End, the east end of London.
Tickets for the event are £30 and is being sponsored by Perrier-Jouet champagne so you'll get champagne, sandwiches, cakes and an entertaining afternoon with myself. It starts at 2.30pm.

I hope to see you there! 


  1. This place is probably my favorite place to organize an event; the meeting rooms are large enough to fit a good amount of guests and small enough that you really feel like you're having a intimate event.

  2. I entered a comment here last week - wonder what happened to it? Will have to remember what I wrote...

  3. As far as I remember, I wrote that I'd love to attend your interview at this elegant hotel while enjoying cake and champagne. Although the entrance fee is a steal, the transportation expense, as your Dad would say, is much too costly for me. I also wrote about your new book. The Secret Tea Party. I shall have to start making hard copies of my comments as I cannot rely on memory any longer.

    1. A flight from the US for a talk would be a little extravagant that's for sure!


I would love to hear what you think of this post! I try to reply to every comment (if there is a delay, I am probably away from an internet connection or abroad)
