A Taste of Christmas Lunch

Wednesday, 25th November

What better way to kick start your Christmas than with some inspirational ideas that will “wow“ your family & friends over the festive period!  There will also be an opportunity to purchase some perfect treats (for yourself!) or gifts for Christmas too.  

Arrive from 10am for coffee and mince pies with time to browse the seasonal goodies, prior to three demonstrations guaranteed to fuel your creativity:-

Our Executive Chef, Marc Hardiman will be sharing his culinary flair and demonstrating a fabulous seasonal starter to kick off Christmas day lunch...or any other meal over the festive period. In addition he will show you a lovely alternative to Christmas pudding that will wow the most impressive of cooks. Recipes will be provided and Marc will happily provide you with answers to your catering dilemmas.

The second demonstration will be by our in-house florist, Rebecca from Lily’s Flowers. The font of all knowledge on all things floral, Rebecca’s enthusiasm and passion is infectious. With suggestions on how to decorate your dining table ready for the festive season and an idea for an "alternative " Christmas tree, Rebecca will also share other innovative ideas to make your home the envy of your guests this Christmas. As always she will take questions from the floor and there will be plenty of banter to keep you entertained!

Our third demonstration will be by Karen Taylor from Liberty WInes and Steve Farell, our Director of Wines. They will be guiding you through some delicious wines to accompany your Christmas lunch (with plenty of opportunity for tasting!).

Sarah from Molton Brown who has attended our previous luncheons will be back again to present Molton Brown’s tempting Christmas Collection for 2015. Lily's Flowers will also have items available to purchase and Simone from My Boutique will be bringing along jewellery, accessories and clothing should you feel  the need for some retail therapy!      

Mulled wine will precede a three course luncheon including wine with Marc and Rebecca on hand to answer any queries or offer advice whilst you digest the morning’s presentations.
