Alison Roman: The Roman EmpireFri 5 May, 8.30pm
Melbourne Town Hall
In her first ever visit to Australia, New York Times–bestselling author and millennial food icon Alison Roman sits down with Benjamin Law to discuss her career, recipes and latest cookbook, Sweet Enough. She shares her journey from working as a chef in professional kitchens to becoming a much-discussed food writer renowned for unfussy, flavourful dishes – exemplified by hit recipes like her Caramelised Shallot Pasta and her new collection of dessert recipes, Sweet Enough – that tap into the culinary zeitgeist for studied imperfection over aspirationally haute cuisine.
Please note, premium seating is excluded from the early-bird discount.
This event will have Auslan interpretation.
This event is supported through the Melbourne City Revitalisation Fund – a $200 million partnership of the Victorian Government and the City of Melbourne.
