I was so thrilled to be invited to give a presentation to the Guild of Food Writers about my Silver Screen Suppers project.  I was very nervous to be speaking to such an esteemed crowd but they made me very welcome and I had lots of lovely compliments afterwards.

We had wonderful retro-styled canapes made by Joan and Heather wearing lovely vintage pinnies:

and Heather invented a special Silver Screen Suppers cocktail:

After my talk I relaxed by playing some Christmas songs on the wind-up for all the guests sipping aforementioned cocktail:

and chatted to some of the lovely, lovely members of the Guild in the Sainsbury’s Headquarters demonstration kitchen:

It was a really fun night and I met some great people.  Thanks to inspiration from Ptolemy I gave the whole presentation without notes.  Scary but fun!
