These include two delicious themed country lunches and Middle East cooking Workshop.

Space for our ever popular winter charcuterie workshops is filling up fast, so if you are keen to attend, don’t delay booking. If the demand is there, we will add additional classes. Alternatively if you have a group of 8 or more people, we can structure a private workshop just for you.

This month our kitchens have been at full capacity processing vegetables, including our ever popular Roasted Red pepper & aubergine relish, Spicy Curried Aubergine Relish, a delicious new Sweet red pepper sauce (great alternative to tomato sauce), Sweet & Sour Peppers (great in salads) and a spicy  classic Chilli jam.

We are once again going to be slaughtering an ox. For meat lovers this will be a unique opportunity to purchase true veld raised and finished beef  that has been well hung to dry age. We are offering you the chance to a buy fore- and/or hind-quarters that we will age for you, cut up, vacuum pack and label – click here for more details.
