One of the Middle Class Handbook editors, Richard Benson, is speaking about new middle class eating habits at a talk at London’s House of St Barnabas on July 16, and if any MCH readers would like to come, we would love to see you there. The event is intended to raise money for the HOSB’s work with London’s homeless.
Richard will be talking about middle-class topics such as the lunchtime sandwich run, the etiquette of eating breakfast at work, and whether the Saturday night takeaway is edging out the Sunday roast as the week’s most enjoyable meal. He may even digress into such old favourites as cupcakes and the correct way to pronounce “scone” and “chorizo”. Other guests include Tom Viney, co-editor of a new magazine called Special Request, and Rosie Lovel, founder of Rosie’s Deli Café in Brixton. Another MCH associate Miranda Sawyer is chair for the evening.
Tickets – all in a good cause are available here.
And if you want to really get involved, you can upload pictures of your lunch to the Facebook link above. All the images will be compiled in a video display on the evening, apparently. Lovely.
