The long awaited Lee Miller cookbook: Lee Miller, A Life with food, Friends & Recipes by her grandaughter Ami Bouhassane is being released mid November.
This OctoberFeast event is a unique preview opportunity to discover Lee Miller's life in relation to food, preview the publication with the author and to sample some of Lee Miller's food.
A woman of many lives and mistress of her own re-invention Lee Miller, model, surrealist and fashion photographer, war correspondent and gourmet cook does everything wholeheartedly and with an imaginative flair. Much has been written about the varied forms of her creativity but Lee Miller's achievement as a gourmet chef is usually left to being an endnote. Her granddaughter Ami Bouhassane sees this part of her life as Miller's longest battle and most extraordinary personal accomplishment in every sense.
This event is a unique opportunity as a sneek preview presentation by Ami Bouhassane author of the cookbook into discovering Lee Miller's life in relation to food, the creation of the publication and to sample some of Lee Miller's food.
Illustrated by Miller's pictures the book also features over a hundred of Lee Miller's recipes and material from the cookbook that Lee Miller herself was secretly hoping to publish at the end of her life – the Entertaining Freezer. More than a book of recipes, it also the new publication explores Lee Miller's life through the influence of food and how it ascends to becoming the creative vehicle that she eventually swaps her camera for and uses to build bridges, heal old wounds, and to empower other women.
Your ticket to the presentation includes a tasting of box of 6 of Lee Miller's recipes made specially for this OctoberFeast preview by Seven Sisters' Spices.
