Who is cooking? We’re Irene and Margaux, two friends who once shared a North London kitchen with salmon pink walls. In November 2018, we started a book club on Sunday afternoons and our pitch was simple: we’d welcome our guests with a feast based on the book we were reading. As the pandemic put a halt to our in-person Sundays, we gave the Salmon Pink Kitchen (a.k.a. SPK) a virtual make-over. Today we’re excited to be able to welcome anyone from anywhere as the SPK Book Club continues to meet online.
What are we reading? The SPK Book Club is curious, inclusive and fuelling. We’re not afraid of re-reading books so we can reconsider the way we see the world around us. We read both fiction and non-fiction titles, across genres, in translation, and we like to shed new light on authors whose work we feel has been overlooked. If you’ve a recommendation, feel free to hit us with a message!
