Delia Smith

The Town Hall   Saturday  

Delia Smith is the United Kingdom’s favourite cookery writer. In a spectacular career lasting over 50 years, she has sold over 21 million books. Although she is now almost as well known for her passion for Norwich City as her culinary skills, Delia pioneered a form of accessible, inclusive TV cooking that inspired generations and as a result is perhaps the only person who could reasonably claim to have taught the entire country to cook.
