A Celebration Of…
At River Cottage HQ we are spoilt for choice when it comes to the abundance of amazing produce grown and raised on our farm and across the southwest. Whilst we celebrate this every day we wanted to make an extra special fuss in our 20th year at River Cottage and give guests the opportunity to join us for an incredible six-course feast focused around some of our favourite ingredients.
Our team of chefs have created an exciting schedule of feasts focusing on some of the incredible ingredients we have and the cooking techniques we use. We will be hosting an indulgent six course feast that will showcase a particular River Cottage passion. We hope we can tempt you to come and join us for one or more of our outstanding feasts…
Friday 21 June 2019 - Fire & Smoke
Saturday 6 July 2019 - Fish & Shellfish
Fire and Smoke - We love any excuse to cook over an open fire at River Cottage. This elemental form of cooking creates flavour, versatility and excitement so we had to devote a whole evening to it. Rain or shine, come down to our new outdoor cookery area for a fabulous, fiery feast.
Fish & Shellfish - Being so near to the coast, fish and seafood has always been close to our hearts at HQ. Our chefs will be using the best, freshest and most sustainable bounty that our local shores can provide. You may be able to glean a few fish filleting tips from the kitchen if you join us.
18.30 - 23.00
