I cook writers
Kitchen workshop with Anne Martinetti

Writers are great gourmets and make it known in their novels and diaries! Anne Martinetti, author and publisher of numerous works combining literature and gastronomy (Creams and Punishments, Ice Crimes, The Little Model Recipes), offers you a cooking workshop where, while discussing, you will cook with her some of her favorite recipes, whether it be Colette's apple pie, Jean Giono's pissaladière, all accompanied by a cocktail signed Agatha Christie!

At the Bibliotheca of Lausanne Palace
Adults and children from 10 years old
Places are limited, upon registration at unlimited(at), CHF 20.00 (to be paid on site).

Writers love to cook!
Lecture by Anne Martinetti

Colette's snacks with crumbs left in books, Medan's dinners cooked by Alexandrine Zola, Victor Hugo's ogresque lunches mocked by Théophile Gautier, Faulkner's cornbread and Leo Tolstoy's barley soups: which writer has not left his greedy paw on his work, combining an appetite for the pleasures of the plate? It is to these literary delights that Anne Martinetti has devoted her work for several years now, going in search of the dishes evoked in the novels and recreating the recipes with a concern for historical precision, but also for modernity... and gourmandise!
