Eat, drink and be literary with Annabel Crabb

We regret this event is now fully booked and we are unable to take further bookings

In top-rating ABC TV show Kitchen Cabinet, Annabel Crabb famously won over Bob Hawke with a plate of Chocolate Choux Buns, Joe Hockey with an Apple Tangle Cake and Tony Abbott with a Nutty Quince Crumble. In Special Delivery, Annabel has teamed up with her childhood best friend Wendy Sharpe, a fellow food tragic and the recipe consultant for Kitchen Cabinet, to bring you over 100 recipes for those knockout desserts, as well as tons of ideas for savouries, pastries, breads and other treats.

Joining Annabel in conversation to discuss all things food, family and politics is Samantha Maiden, National Political Editor of The Sunday Telegraph. Samantha and Annabel were students at Adelaide University together and joined for a wonderful conversation at the Canberra launch of Annabel's bestselling book The Wife Drought at ANU in 2014. 

Ticket price includes a sumptuous two-course dinner (with canapes on arrival) inspired by recipes from Special Delivery, a glass of wine and tea or coffee. We all know Annabel is something of a dessert queen, so to celebrate her love of all things sweet the menu will feature an assiette (that means more than one) of desserts (all to yourself) to round off what is sure to be a wonderful evening. 

Annabel will be signing books from 6.30pm and there will be a cash bar available before the event starts. Books on sale thanks to the ANU Co Op.
