Pop-up Future Dates

We have two dates organised for 2010 after the October Pop-up-
Sunday 7th November and Sunday 5th December.
I hope you can make it!

Chestnut Festival at Frontline 3rd October

Charlotte, Rohan and I are back at Frontline in Paddington on Sunday 3rd October with a feast of Chestnuts and Wild Boar. The Pop-ups have been so much fun, we are hoping we can continue to do them on the first Sunday of each month.

I was in Italy last weekend for the harvest of the Pinot Noir- the grapes were wonderfully healthy. We made some delicious grape schiaccia which is made with the wine grapes and is deliciously sticky but quite savoury. I hope we can make some for the 3rd. I have added some photos at the bottom...

Lunch 1pm for 1:30pm and Dinner 7:30 for 8pm £30 a head (£25 for Vegetarians)
Quince and Amiata Chestnut Soup
Wild Boar Stew, Roasted Pumpkin and Onions with Wild Pears, Salad with Potentino Dressing
Pecorino and Mostarda
Chestnuts cooked with wild fennel

Coffee is included. 
All our ingredients will come from Italy or sourced locally in England.
