The team at Letchworth’s David’s Bookshop have landed another big name for a signing event in the town.

Celebrity chef and fish fan Rick Stein will be chatting about his latest book From Venice to Istanbul in conversation with the food writer Tom Jaine at the town’s Broadway Cinema on Sunday, September 6.

The session begins at 3.15pm and tickets are £25, including a copy of the hardback – you can also get a pair of tickets and one copy of the book for £30.

Tickets are available now from the Eastcheap shop on 01462 684631 or from the nearby cinema – visit for more.

Rick says: “I like to think of Venice and Istanbul as two large books propping up a shelf full of stories about the cooking of the Eastern Mediterranean.”

His journey takes him through the heart of Greece and Croatia and the resulting book includes more than 100 recipes inspired by his journey.
