Enjoy a century of food and fiction


What better way could there be to while away a few hours during the winter months and make spring seem a bit closer than to take part in a new course from Nettleton Workers Education Association (WEA).

Starting on Wednesday, January 22, ‘a century of food and fiction’ will look at what we have loved to eat and relished reading since 1914.

The course will look at Edwardian excess, wartime rations and poetry, the jazz age, fashions in dieting and slimmed-down stories, the growth of ethnic eating and fiction from India, the celebrity chef, erotic food writing, food in science fiction and much more.

The course is run by Judith Hedley and costs £47.25 for nine weeks.

It takes place at Nettleton Village Hall from 7.30pm to 9pm.
