Join us for an evening of great gut health and more, with writer, broadcaster, campaigner and River Cottage impresario, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall.

In his new book How to Eat 30 Plants a Week, Hugh shows you how to get many more plants on your plate, with people-pleasing plant-only dishes at the fore, as well as some humdingers with a little well-chosen meat or fish along for the ride. By plants, Hugh means fruit and veg and much more besides - including nuts, seeds, pulses, grains, herbs, spices, chocolate and even coffee.

With an introduction by Tim Spector, bestselling author and founder of ZOE, 30 plants may sound a lot, but in Hugh's expert hands it feels like an easy win, for the delicious meals as much as the incredible health benefits. Central to these is great gut health and in racking up the plant power, you'll feel great, have renewed energy and reset your microbiome.

These new recipes include: * Purple shakshuka * Shroomami soup * Sichuan aubergine with tofu and black beans * Caponata with chickpeas and apricots * Goat's cheese and greens herby pie * Tomato, rosemary and saffron baked rice * Slow-roast Merguez-spiced shoulder of lamb * Roast ratatouille flatfish * Kimchi and Kraut slaws * Very berry ripple fro-yo ... and many more.

Hugh's many series for Channel 4 have earned him a huge popular following, while his River Cottage books have collected multiple awards including the Glenfiddich Trophy and the André Simon Food Book of the Year. Hugh’s additional broadcasting, like the hugely influential Fish Fight, has earned him a BAFTA as well as awards from Radio 4, the Observer and the Guild of Food Writers.

'I love the way Hugh inspires us to eat more of the good stuff, and he's done it again brilliantly here.' Jamie Oliver
