What’s on?

Slake Gin talk: Are all GINs created equal?

Tom will be giving a short talk on Saturday 5th May about different GIN production methods and how they influence the taste and character of GINs with a tasting flight to accompany it.

Guest Chef: River Cottage’s Gill Meller

Gill Meller will join us in our Cookery Theatre for  cooking demonstrations on the afternoons of Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 May 2018.

Gill is a chef, food writer, author, food stylist and cookery teacher. He lives near the small fishing town of Lyme Regis, in Dorset. His cooking is a reflection of his surroundings. He takes inspiration from the landscape, his locality, and the amazing farmers, growers and fisherman that produce the ingredients he uses.
