FBF: James Strawbridge Cooks: Salt of the Earth

James is passionate about cooking seasonally and using the best Cornish produce. He’ll be talking about his new cookbook, Salt and the Art of Seasoning and demystifying the art of brining, curing, charring and preserving – techniques that bring out a world of hidden flavours.

James is also a renowned TV presenter, having fronted last year’s BBC series ‘Strawbridge over the Drawbridge’ and made numerous appearances on 'Escape to the Chateau' on Channel 4.  James has previously been shortlisted for the Guild of Food Writers Awards and is the author of two previous cookbooks, The Artisan Kitchen and The Complete Vegetable cookbook, as well as various books with his father Dick Strawbridge.
