Sunday, 20 October 2020
10am till 4pm

SOLD OUT

Mickey Robertson (a citron tart aficionado) of Glenmore House, Camden is a little fond of my lemon curd tart! So much so that it was the catalyst for this event!

There will be some handmade pasta and using Mickey’s glorious spring kitchen garden vegetables, and much more (I can’t give it all away!!!).

The day will begin at 10am in the Dairy with morning tea! During the morning we will pick and cook…and when the labour of love is done……we will eat!  Depending on the weather, we will enjoy a long-table lunch either in the loggia or if it’s too chilly, inside by the fire. There will be time to potter in the Barn and linger longer in the garden, we expect the day to end by 4pm.

Mickey & I would love for you to join us!

THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT!
