Posters and leaflets are everywhere now, so there’s no excuse for missing out on what should be a really great foodie night. There’ll be lots of different foods to taste, all supplied by our favourite Pantry suppliers, and lots of local drinks to sample alongside them, together with expert advice on good – and not so good – food and drink pairings. You’ll have fun, learn something new and perhaps make a few surprising discoveries about exactly what food and drink is being produced very close to home. And of course you’ll be able to buy products from the General Store after the tasting.
So do come along and help to make it a really buzzing night.
Incidentally, as this is an expensive event for a small group like ours to put on, The Pantry has decided to subsidise it, to keep the price of the tickets at £15, as we really want to bring something a little bit different to Piddington.
So please support The Pantry by joining us on 13 September, and please encourage anyone you think might be interested about our Market on a Plate to buy a ticket. The more people that come, the better the atmosphere.
See you there!
Posters and leaflets have been distributed, but the best publicity is word of mouth. So please spread the word about this exciting event – get a group of like-minded friends together and have fun sharing the various tasting platters and comparing notes on the different food and drink pairings.
The change in the weather over the last few days has sent me hunting through my drawers in search of warm woollies, and, while not quite ready to swap the chilled rose and salads for a warm red and a casserole, I am starting to look forward to the good things autumn can bring. One of these is our extra-special autumn event, which we’re calling ‘A Market on a Plate’.
Regular Pantry-goers will know that we always try to make each market a little bit different, but this autumn, instead of our regular market, we’re putting a local food and drink tasting evening, open only to ticket-holders. Tickets will be available soon, and the ticket price will include a welcome drink, tasting platters – Savoury (meat, fish, vegetable), Sweet and Cheese – and drinks tasters. We’ll have some guest speakers and there’ll be an opportunity to do a bit of shopping, as a range of products will be available to buy on the night. This promises to be a really interesting and enjoyable social evening, and we should all learn something about the local food and drink we have available to us.
So, put the date in your diary now: Saturday 13 September, 7 pm, for a 7.30 pm start.
