River Cottage Spicy Nights
Part of the Taste East Devon Festival 9-24 Sept 23.
Join us for a night at River Cottage HQ as we bring the flavours of the East to East Devon!
We are internationally renowned for creating a constantly changing menu inspired by our SLOW ethos of ingredients that are Seasonal, Local, Organic and Wild: plants, meat and fish that have been foraged, grown, raised and caught either right here on the farm, or by nearby farmers, growers and artisans who share our passion for the finest provenance. Two of these organic growers, Trill Farm and Haye Farm, are our neighbours.
As well as celebrating the fantastic ingredients right here on our East Devon doorstep, we can't help but be inspired by the flavours of countries around the world. Our Spicy Nights dining event brings the flavours of the East and East Devon together to create a divine three-course feast.
You can expect: Poppadoms made with English pea flour with homemade chutneys and dips; Bhajis using veg from our Kitchen garden; Curry made with lamb from our farm; Dhal made with English spilt peas; Homemade flatbreads; ancient English grain pilau and much more!
In celebration of the Taste East Devon festival our September event is available at a special price!
