Bread-Making Workshop

Sorry now sold out

20th & 21st February

Learn a variety of bread types and techniques from our Riverford chefs in this practical baking day with a little veg-magic thrown in.

You’ll be welcomed with coffee and London buns and go straight into making sourdough. From beetroot rye to parsnip & Cheddar soda bread, this hands-on workshop will teach you basics skills to elevate your bread to impressive levels.

You will take home a selection of breads made during the day plus a pot of ‘Peggy’ – our own sourdough starter culture to continue baking at home and enjoy a very special ‘working lunch’ in the Riverford Field Kitchen

£38 for the day (including lunch).

Goat Night (aka Cow Dairy-Free Night)

2nd March 7pm

A night to celebrate the goat! In the UK, we consume a good deal of goat cheese but rarely see other goat dairy or goat meat on menus.

Goat meat supplier Cabrito’s kids are a by-product of the dairy industry and would normally be euthanized at birth. With dwindling food resources and rising food prices, we agree this cannot be justified and are proud to support the supply network of farms producing high quality goat meat from previously wasted resources.

In the Field Kitchen, we are also conscious of the rise in guests unable to digest cow’s dairy so we are also taking this opportunity to celebrate a night of goat dairy.

Our goat dairy is organic and the goat meat is a non-organic project in ethical & sustainable food improvement. Join us to salute the goat.

£27.50 for 3 courses. To book call 01803 762074 or click here.
