Our Dine ‘n’ Dems are a different way to enjoy dinner, spending time with friends in our beautifully restored Victorian school hall. Don’t just eat dinner – be part of it as we take you through the dishes, their flavours and history.
It’s not so much private dining (though numbers are limited) as a communal, collaborative and relaxed affair. It will be a memorable evening for yourselves or a lovely memory making gift for friends.
We’ll welcome you with a drink and some nibbles before seating you around our demonstration area complete with camera so you won’t miss a thing. Our tutors will talk you through the dishes whilst we assemble them in front of you for you to enjoy over the next few hours. During this time there’s plenty of opportunity to ask questions, chat with our tutors & fellow guests.
You may well come as guests but will leave as friends.
Known as the Festival of Light Diwali is celebrated by millions around the world with rows and rows of lights, fireworks and chalk patterns. Each faith & person has their own take & meaning from the five day festival – for us it’s a chance to trundle out Zalena, eat flavoursome food and let her explain the traditions behind it.
