We are giving three lucky winners the chance to win a copy of The Restaurant- A History of Eating Out written by erudite William Sitwell (restaurant critic for the Daily Telegraph, previously award-winning editor for Waitrose Food and regularly spotted making acerbic comments on MasterChef). 

Tracing its earliest incarnations in the city of Pompeii, this is a romp through history as we meet the characters and discover the events that shape the way we eat today. These include influences from a 14th century culinary adventurer, the French Revolution’s unintended consequences for fine dining, the Roux brothers transforming Britain’s post-war dining scene, and Alice Water's counterculture food revolution, championing the farmer and seasonality back in 1960s California (an ethos that Hampshire Fare was founded on three decades later). This is a story of art, politics, revolution, desperate need and decadent pleasure, and The Restaurant is a book to devour from start to finish or dip into for delicious morsels.

So enter now for your chance to win!

The competition will run from 11th June - 3rd August 2020. The prize includes 3x lucky winners all receiving 1x copy of The Restaurant- A History of Eating Out by William Sitwell. The winner will be chosen by random and contacted by the 5th August 2020 using the contact details provided. The winner will have 48hrs to confirm receipt of their prize otherwise Hampshire Fare reserves the right to redraw a new winner.
