Borough Market has launched the Cookbook Club for anyone who loves good food, good cookery books and good company. Free to join, the Cookbook Club offers members the opportunity to join a series of exclusive events, each focused on recipes from a classic cookery book. Borough Market Cookbook Club launches on May 24.
Each event will be held in the Cookhouse at Borough Market. Club members who book a ticket will be asked to pick something to make from that book, cook it at home and then bring it along to the Cookhouse at Borough Market. The food, and the experience of cooking from the book, will shared over drinks supplied by the Market’s traders.
The events are organised and hosted by food writer, Angela Clutton, who will be cooking her chosen dish at each session for members to share, and giving some background and insight into the book and its writer.
How it works:
—Join the Cookbook Club by emailing email@example.com with your name, home address and email address.
—Once you have joined we’ll email you back with your membership number and details of how to book to attend the Club events. That will include how to let us know what dish you’ll be making and information about the Loyalty Card for Cookbook Club members.
Cookbook Club events dates and books:
From 6:30pm to 8:30pm in The Cookhouse, Three Crown Square.

Food From Plenty by Diana Henry
Food From Plenty is focussed on cooking with respect for resources and the importance of produce seasonality, making it an obvious choice for the Borough Market Cookbook Club. It is crammed with hearty dishes that (typically of Diana Henry’s award-winning style for The Sunday Telegraph and her many other books) are an absolute delight to cook and to eat. Definitely food for sharing the pleasure of.

Amaretto, Apple Cake and Artichokes – the best of Anna del Conte by Anna del Conte
Nigella Lawson calls Anna del Conte: ‘Easily the best Italian food writer around’. Certainly when Anna started writing about food in the 1970s she was also the first England-based writer to focus particularly on Italian food. Born in Milan and having lived there or elsewhere in Italy right up until she moved to England to be an au pair, Anna’s food is very obviously ‘real’ Italian food with a focus on cooking with top quality, seasonal produce. As befits a ‘best of’ book these are the highlights of Anna del Conte’s life work (and it is surely up there as one the best ever cookery book names).

Jerusalem by Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi
When the ‘Ottolenghi’ way of cooking burst into our kitchens it brought with it a wealth of new ingredients and recipe ideas from the Middle East, Asia and the Mediterranean. There should be plenty to talk about as Jerusalem tells the story of Yotam and Sami’s personal food heritage in the city and the recipes show culinary influences from the Muslim, Jewish, Arab, Christian and Armenian communities.

Happy Christmas by Delia Smith
Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a bit of Delia Smith, would it? Generations of home-cooks have time and again reached for the various editions of her festive cookery books to guide them safely through the culinary stresses, strains and delights of the season. ‘Happy Christmas’ is her latest and is full of both traditional and more modern recipes. In Delia’s safe hands the Cookbook Club will be kicking off December in good festive-style and hopefully members might come across a dish or two that will come in handy for your own Christmas cooking.
