A feast for the mind and the appetite is on the menu at a lively country book celebration. Words in Winter is hosted in Daylesford.

This year the theme is Food for Thought. The theme includes finding food, growing food, cooking it and of course enjoying it. Four locals with wide experience as writers and growers will join the festival, including well known food critic for The Australian, John Lethlean. As well, Claude Forell (former reviewer for The Age and now local resident and blueberry farmer), Kate Berry (blogger and magazine editor of Lunch Lady), and Rohan Anderson, a modern-day hunter-gatherer, and book author of Whole Larder Love.

Words in Winter runs from August 5 to 7 at a wide range of venues across Hepburn Shire.
