Hola Marden…

This is all part of our plans of feeding the masses… so on Friday 14th June 2019  we will be popping up in the village of Marden.

To be precise we are going to be at the “Cidery” of Turners Cider, Marden for just one night. 

The plan is to rock up with our big paella pans and we will be cooking fresh pans of mixed Meat & Seafood Paella or Vegetarian version that we will serve with a complimentary glass of cider (there will be more to purchase on the night) and to round it all off we will serve local fresh strawberries and cream.

The idea is for guests to bring their own chairs or blankets and to chill out in the adjacent orchard underneath some plum trees as we will also have a live band that will entertain you all and create what we hope will be a mini festival atmosphere.

It will be informal, chilled and a great way to start a Summers weekend.

Music will be provided by Ray Rich who is a highly acclaimed musician that will play a mix of  Jazz, Blues, Soul & Serious Rock ‘n’ Roll. We hope you will join us and ensure we have a fun filled evening. There is limited capacity for this event so we do recommend you book early.

To purchase tickets we are offering “Early Bird” for those that book by the end of the month. Those booking thereafter will be charged slightly more. (please see below)

Guest are asked to bring their own chairs, blankets and wet weather gear. We will kick the evening off at 7pm prompt and will finish by 10pm  (please make sure you have torches to aid your return to your vehicles)

Looks as good as it tastes!

Paraskevidekatriaphobia sufferers need not attend…

Well for our July event it will take place on Friday 13th July – we are not superstitious and hope you aren’t either!  We are planning weather permitting to make it an alfresco meal down the bottom of our garden – please note if weather is too unsettled it will be done indoors.

We felt for this dinner we would make it a memorable four course meal that showcased some interesting techniques and flavour combinations. (Not that all are dinners are not so intended!)

We will kick the meal off with a welcome dink and nibbles of a seasonal nature and then serve as a first course a homemade coarse terrine that will incorporate pork and chicken… I love making a terrine as there is a skill to keeping it moist and full of flavour and it always excites me when I cut into it for the first time. I will serve it with a homemade butternut squash & cranberry chutney that has been maturing now for a good while!

Next a challenging dish for some will be a Ceviche of sea bass and salmon. This is raw marinated fish served with a thinly sliced salad of fennel. The addition of mint in the Ceviche also adds a zing to the citric marinade that cooks the fish. Perfect for a summer evening.

The main course will be roasted beef fillet served with a “Pepper Club” sauce – this is a piquant green peppercorn and port soaked raisin cream sauce – we will serve some fresh green beans (as always) and pommes dauphine little deep fried mashed potato and choux pastry pillows… perfect to mop up the sauce.

Finally we will basically serve a jelly & ice cream dessert that will showcase Marden based cider makers Phil & May Turner and specifically their elderflower cider – we will also stud it with fresh local raspberries and when we serve it some homemade strawberry parfait and warm butter shortbread biscuits.
