'Lose Weight for Good' with Tom Kerridge


Tuesday 30 January, 7.30pm

Village Books and Alleyn's School invite you to hear Michelin-star chef Tom Kerridge talk about how to cook full flavour meals for a low-calorie diet with a difference. Tom will be in conversation and there'll be lots of time at the end for your questions.

As Tom says: 'It's impossible to stick to a diet if the food you're expected to eat is boring and doesn't fill you up. So I've developed lots of tasty and satisfying recipes that people will love to cook and eat, but that will also help them lose weight. I truly believe that this attitude works. I've been there myself and now I want to help others get there too.'
