Loyd Grossman CBE, writer, TV presenter and food critic will be joining Professor Roger Kirby (RSM President) for a fascinating discussion about his career, his time on MasterChef and Through the Keyhole, his love for heritage and art history and his "lively and informative" new book An Elephant in Rome: Bernini, The Pope and The Making of the Eternal City.
After starting a career in journalism Loyd was diverted into television where, as a writer, presenter or deviser he was involved in a wide range of programmes, including the hugely popular Through the Keyhole and MasterChef.
Loyd’s knowledge of and fascination with food led him to create his own cooking sauce brand in 1995, which became Britain’s most successful new premium food brand.
Loyd has always had a deep fondness and been involved in heritage and art history which led him to pen An Elephant in Rome: Bernini, The Pope and The Making of the Eternal City. His love of Rome was kindled by his first encounter with the enigmatic and strangely beautiful monument to this relationship between artist and pope: the elephant carrying on obelisk outside Santa Maria Sopra Minerva. An Elephant in Rome is a book for those who love the endless fascination of the Eternal City and want a deeper and more entertaining tale of how it came to be.
