Join two bestselling, uplifting authors for a unique evening out at the Bottle & Glass Inn’s beautiful barn.
Melissa Hemsley is established as one of our leading food writers, with a focus on simple, affordable, healthy meals. Following Eat Happy & Eat Green her latest book Feel Good: Quick and Easy Recipes for Comfort and Joy features 100 recipes to suit all lifestyles: from cook-ahead lunches and one-pan meals to stress-free picnic food and puddings that don’t rely on refined sugars. An ambassador for Mental Health Mates, the Fairtrade Foundation and Women Supporting Women, Melissa is also an accomplished event host and volunteer for food waste charity The Felix Project.
Living locally with her family, two dogs, ten cats and too many chickens to count, author and illustrator Laura Brand made the Sunday Times bestseller list with her first book The Joy Journal for Magical Everyday Play. She now returns – complete with a foreword by Melissa! – with The Joy Journal For Grown-ups: 50 homemade craft ideas to inspire creativity and connection. Whether you are a beginner or confident crafter, Laura gently guides you through a host of delightful projects including beautiful flower-pressed candles, scented body butter and origami hearts.
Don’t miss this pop-up event as Laura and Melissa share stories and tips in a special setting.
Food and drink from the kitchen will be available to purchase.
