FESTIVE LUNCH CLUB EXTRAVAGANZA

Saturday 08 December 2018

10am–3pm

This has become one of the hottest tickets in our calendar year and it’s full on festive fun all the way!
Delicious treats await you upon arrival as we open our special Christmas Market showcasing edible gifts, cooking gadgets and Angela’s Cookery Books which make perfect stocking fillers and treats for friends and family.
Inside the kitchen we welcome you with delicious treats and hot drinks. Then sit back and relax as the culinary extravaganza begins!  Angela will be presenting three short demonstrations highlighting some of her favourite celebratory dishes including a stunning Ballotine of Free-Range Goose (de-boned, stuffed and trussed) and an eye-popping Layered Spiced Winter Fruit and Amaretti Pie, plus lots more!  We will be serving a complimentary glass of festive fizz to accompany a selection of fabulous pre-lunch canapés.
Following the final demonstration, Angela and her team will serve a fabulous two-course lunch.  The event will end with the infamous festive raffle, featuring all the dishes that have been demonstrated, plus a couple of surprises from Angela.
