Pop-up: The Winter Edition - Somerset

Join is to celebrate the seasons with four uniquely different and special pop-up suppers at Spike Island.

For our Winter edition we are visiting back in the UK, Somerset in fact. 

For most of us The Glorious Twelfth (the beginning of the grouse season) passes by without notice or comment and we are still less likely to know much about the complex and fascinating landscape, historically, environmentally and literally of game beyond it. 
This supper begins with a talk and demonstration by a Somerset gamekeeper. 

There will be a glass of delicious Bandol to go with the Venison

  • Game terrine
  • Roast saddle of venison, winter vegetables
  • Montgommery’s Cheddar
  • Apple tart with apple brandy ice cream 

Included in the price of your ticket will be a cookery demo by Barny Haughton and a glass of wine paired with one of your course. 

There will be vegetarian and vegan options for each supper - please let us know of any dietary requirements via the booking form. 

The profits from these suppers support the community food education work of Square Food Foundation

£35 or book four pop-up suppers for £120

Four Seasons Series- Summer. A Taste of Sicily.

A Sicilian cookery masterclass by Fabrizia Lanza from Case Vecchie, the acclaimed cookery school near Palermo.

Fabrizia’s dishes for the masterclass are not yet confirmed but this is a flavour of what she is proposing:

Bruschetta/panelle
Caponata di melanzana (aubergine caponata) 
Ravioli con Salsa pronta
Spezzatino di agnello (Sicilian lamb stew)
Patate allo zafferano (saffron potatoes)
Biancomangiare (Italian custard with candied orange and pistachio)

Fabrizia will be using some wonderful ingredients from Case Vecchie including olives, olive oil & lemons along with produce from The Community Farm here in Somerset and fish and meat from places and people which we hope will honour the traditions & style of Fabrizia’s cooking

We can cater for most dietary requirements, just make sure you let us know on your booking form.

The class will include tastings throughout and supper. You are welcome to bring your own wine, beer or other drinks. All recipes cooked by you or demonstrated will be sent on to you by email following the class.
