Get your food book fix at Whet this summer

Written by

Do your bookshelves heave with the works of Delia, Hugh, Jamie and Nigella? Was the last novel you read called 'Toast'? Do you skip straight to the 'Cook' section of the weekend paper? Get thee to Whet, a pop-up bookshop selling only food-related publications.

As well as classic and modern cookbooks that will improve any cook's repertoire, there's a selection of food history books, some more general food writing, novels that are obsessed with what their characters are eating and a colourful collection of independent magazines. The stock is beautifully curated by Sarah Lo, who normally works at a nearby bakery, and who can help you to choose if you need the help (and make you feel less guilty when you pick up more than you intended to). Your commute entertainment just got a lot more delicious.

Whet is open 11am-5pm on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays until the end of September at the back of TripKitchen in Haggerston.
