A very special Masterclass…

Learn how to take classic dishes and elevate them to new heights.

After a welcome glass of fizz, Kenny Tutt, MasterChef Champion 2018, will lead you through the preparation of that British classic, a mustard-coated rib of beef.

He’ll then take you through his tips for the perfect golden roast potato, seasonal vegetables, Yorkshire puddings, bread sauce and proper gravy – and he’ll join you with a specially matched wine as you enjoy your Sunday roast together at the end of this one-off Masterclass.

Foraged and Cultivated - Flour Pot Winter Dinner
At Flour Pot Bakery Brighton Beach
Tuesday, 29th January 2019
19:00 - 22:00

So Winter is well and truly upon us, although we have been blessed with some incredible sunshine at the start of this year down on the seafront!

We thought we would kick start our 2019 series of Flour Pot Dinners, with an exclusive event at our seafront Kitchen, with Sam Fry, from the Two Star Michelin restaurant, L'Enclume in Cumbria and our own Head Chef Matty Bowling.

January is traditionally known for being a tough time of year for any chef trying to form a seasonal, creative menu.
However, by combining the produce that is at its best in the colder months, with ingredients that have been gathered and preserved in various ways during the more bountiful parts of the year, we feel that we have created an evening for you with dishes that are both relevant and delicious.
