An evening of Polish food
Date: 01/03/2018

Pierogi and more...’ a Polish food themed evening!
We have teamed up with our Slow Food friends at Old Granary Pierogi for a very special evening of Polish food in the Beacon rooms at Ludlow Castle. 
The evening starts with an introduction to Polish food by Emilia, followed by the opportunity to have a go at filling and shaping a classic Pierogi, to really get a feel for it. 
Another good Slow Food friend, Tom Oliver of Olivers Cider and Perry will then talk about the ciders and perry he has matched with the food.
You will then have the opportunity to try a range of Polish specialities including oscypek cheese (PDO cert), ‘rydzowy’ oil (TSG cert), kabanossi (TSG cert), ‘Dylewska ham’ (regional delicacy), smoked prunes, dill pickles  and sourdough bread with caraway seeds, accompanied by a glass of selected cider and perry. Then it's time for the Pierogi!
The cost includes drinks and advance booking is essential.

To continue with our exploration of sources of local and sustainable fish we are very pleased to announce a special menu devised by Chef/Patron Pete Mace of the Ducks Nest, Presteigne for the Slow Food Ludlow Marches group. At a very reasonable £23.50/£25.00 including a glass of wine it is excellent value and promises to be a convivial evening with the opportunity to hear from Pete about how he sources and prepares fish dishes.

Due to exceptional demand we are running a second event on Friday February 9th

Cooking Conversations
Date: 19/04/2018

Cooking Conversations work on the basic idea of choosing a cookery 'icon' as a theme for each event. The chosen food writer will be Nigella Lawson, with everyone attending the meal bringing a dish made from one of her recipes to share and to stimulate reminiscence, laughter and talk.

These events in 2017 proved to be very popular and convivial occasions and more details will come out nearer the time.
