Five courses for £28 fees apply online (vegetarian options available, please let us know in advance), drinks not included.   Roberta's started life in 2007 when three friends got together to open a restaurant, quite simply because they wanted a great place to hang out and eat pizza. They bought a cinderblock warehouse in Bushwick, a part of New York City which as they put it, was still Wild West enough to be affordable. With little experience in the restaurant industry between them and no corporate investors, the restaurant grew slowly and without the expectations or limitations that a conventional restaurant business might have.  From its original starting point it grew into a pizza place with a tented Tiki bar; an onsite radio station; a roof top garden that doubled as a dirt bike track and a twelve cover Michelin starred tasting den outback. There may now be discord amongst the three friends, but pizza remains their signature, although not one rooted to a particular geographical area. More like the marrying of ingredients (some of which come directly from their rooftop garden) and flavours that work well together. Latterly, pasta, delicate salads, home cures and wood roasted meats have appeared on the menu. Its reputation, both for its food and its vibe, means that people travel from afar to eat there. And the story of how it got to being, alongside key recipes, is all captured in their cookbook. Bertha's Pizza, run by Graham and Kate Faragher is a family pizzeria which recently made its home in the Old Stables, on Gaol Ferry steps. Before this, Bertha's was an iconic part of Bristol's street food scene, serving wood fired sourdough pizza from a sunflower yellow converted Landrover. The pizzas here use carefully sourced ingredients with seasonal specials  that surprise and delight. They also make fabulous gelato and have no fewer than four negronis on the menu. It's with great delight that Bertha's will be hosting the Roberta's Cookbook for the next Eat Your Words Bristol on Tuesday 18th of July.
