Delicious Garden Drinks with Rachel de Thample & Ciara Roberts
Thursday July 19th 2018, 6-8pm
Spend the evening learning how to brew up delicious (and healthy) drinks from seasonal garden produce. Rachel de Thample who teaches preserves at River Cottage and wild food cookery at Made in Hackney will take you on a delicious tasting tour of drinks she’s brewed up with freshly harvested fruits, flowers and herbs such as Elderflower Kefir, Wild Cherry Kombucha and Rhubarb Ginger Beer. Rachel will be joined by nutritional therapist Ciara Jean Roberts who’ll provide insight into the health benefits of each of the drinks has to offer. By the end of the evening you’ll know how to make your own and how to use them to make you feel amazing.

Please note, when you book the talk the £17 ticket price includes a glass of wine (or soft drink) and entry to the Garden. Please book your supper separately (also £17 per person) - we will have sittings at 5.45pm and 8.30pm.

The meal will be a mixed buffet as well as a dessert.

The talk itself is from 7-8.15pm

Please note there is no lift to the lecture room (which is up some stairs) and we apologise for any inconvenience this might cause.
