Food & Drink Stage
Hosted by FT Food & Drink editor, Alexander Gilmour
Our specials of the day begin with breakfast in bed cooked by Honey & Co and Simon Schama and finish with a global wine tour guided by Jancis Robinson. In between, the inimitable Prue Leith serves up a literary feast, Nicholas Lander explores the genesis of the British restaurant and we identify the world’s greatest national dish. Plus take a peek behind the curtains of Lunch with the FT and get tips from Berry Bros on how to invest in wine.
