Caroline Eden:
Cold Kitchen

venue Buccleuch Marquee
date Saturday 15 June
time 3:45 pm
ticket prices £10 | £8


Caroline Eden’s basement Edinburgh kitchen is like a portal to other worlds. With its union of practicality and magic, a kitchen offers an unlikely route out of the ordinary, offering opportunities to cook, imagine and create ways back into other times and other places – Central Asia, Turkey, Ukraine, the South Caucasus, the Baltics and Poland. Join Caroline as she shares recipes from her travels, reflects on past adventures and contemplates the kitchen’s unique ability to tell human stories. This is a hauntingly honest, and at times heart-breaking memoir with the smell, taste and preparation of food at its heart. And Cold Kitchen will warm your heart. It is a unique blend of history, place, love, food and belonging.
