TALK | HOOKED: MARK HIX IN CONVERSATION WITH MARIELLA FROSTRUP | MONDAY 20 MAY

Our patron celebrates the launch of his new book with an in-conversation fundraiser chaired by Mariella Frostrup, the broadcaster known for BBC Radio 4’s Open Book. Part of our anniversary celebrations.

Hooked—Adventures in Angling and Eating delves into the anecdotes and recipes of chef Mark Hix, opening with the story of his first catch being cooked by his grandmother—the catalyst for his passion.

You will be regaled with tales of extraordinary fishing expeditions at home and afar, from the banks of the Dumfriesshire coast to New Zealand’s Milford Sound, with each trip ending in a feast – be it the catch of the day (if all went to plan), or something found and foraged if the need arises (always have a back-up plan). Hooked features 50 recipes for food and drink from Sea bass curry, Barracuda & pineapple ceviche and Trout kedgeree to Temperley sour and Macho margarita. Weaved into the narrative are the infectious, and unexpected, joys of fishing and what it does for you. Hint: it’s not necessarily about the fish.
