Diana lives in London and when she ’s not whipping up a feast in the kitchen, she can be found planning trips around the globe – most recently to Russia -watching Scandi drama and reading American and Irish literature.

Fiona will talk to Diana about her career so far, her cook books and in particular her latest book 'How to Eat a Peach’ which focuses on Diana's love of planning menus. The menus in the book reflect places Diana loves and dishes that are real favourites. The book will be published on April 5th so this is a chance to meet the author and see the book hot off the press! The  interview will be followed by a Q&A session, a tasting of some mouth watering samples of Diana’s recipes, and a book signing.
