Small Fires: Rebecca May Johnson & Jonathan Nunn

Cooking, we are told, has nothing to do with serious thought; the path to intellectual fulfilment leads directly out of the kitchen. In Small Fires (Pushkin), essayist and food writer Rebecca May Johnson takes a different path, rewriting the kitchen as a vital source of knowledge, revelation and radical thought.

Johnson, author of the popular Substack ‘Dinner Document’, was in conversation with Jonathan Nunn, who writes about the London food scene for and edits the ‘Vittles’ newsletter.
