Guild of Food Writers Annual Lecture Dinner

Tuesday night saw many members of the Guild of Food Writers descend on the Radisson Edwardian Mayfair Hotel for the Annual Lecture Dinner. The lecture was given by Dame Deirdre Hutton of the FSA who spoke about the role of the agency and some of the work it has done to date. Interestingly the FSA is apparently revenue-neutral! I'm sure that must be a first for an agency of its kind.

The food was excellent with divine canapes (most of which I seemed to miss as I was detailed to take photographs!) and the dinner and accompanying wine excellent. The main course was sirloin steak and it was quite outstanding.
