The Appetite for Words Festival program is a partnership between the Stratford Writers Festival and the Stratford Chefs School and features authors who have written about food, and fiction writers who allow food to become a strong component of scenes and/or the characters in their novels. The best part is, chefs and students from Stratford Chefs School develop and prepare menus inspired by featured books so you can taste the words you’re reading.
Appetite for Words revolves around storytelling and is created for the enthusiastic and curious — anyone interested in reading, discussing and consuming food (that’s you, right?). We also have educational workshops and tasting sessions. Join us for some of Canada’s best food writing talent.
Experience the literary and culinary arts in a new way at this innovative festival in Stratford, Ontario. At literary dinners and lunches, food is matched with an author’s readings, so participants can actually taste the words they’re hearing. During workshops, participants can build their skills and increase their knowledge of both the culinary and literary arts. From a literary picnic-style farm lunch to a food photography workshop, come whet your appetite for literature during our collaboration with the Stratford Chefs School.
