A talk by Aaron Bertelsen at Gravetye Manor

Wednesday 11th October
 
“I believe that cooking, like gardening, is an activity best done with other people, and there is nothing better than a leisurely afternoon in the kitchen making jam or chutney with a good friend. It is a celebration of everything the garden has given us.” Join us as Aaron shares his joy of growing fruit and vegetables in the kitchen garden at Great Dixter, the historic house and garden located on the borders of Kent and Sussex. Christopher Lloyd, the revered gardener and writer who grew up in the house, believed the best way to celebrate home-grown seasonal produce, was with honest, simple cooking. Signed copies of the book will be available to purchase.
Gathering at 10.30am for the talk, followed by lunch at 12.00 noon.
£80.00 per person, aperitif, 3 courses, drinks and talk inclusive.
