As mentioned in my earlier blog on the Art of Butchery, Charlie Hodson something of a local food hero. He is also Executive Head Chef of the beautiful and historic Great Hospital in Bishopgate, Norwich.
Charlie is also Norfolk Ambassador for Marie Curie who, next week, are encouraging everyone to hold a Great Blooming Tea Party. So what better excuse for a chef like Charlie to get everyone together?
The Great Blooming Tea Party will be held on Wednesday 22 June in the Birkbeck Hall at the Hospital – so even if the British summer decides to drench the grass, guests will remain dry!
Tickets cost just £7.50 and tables of 10 are available. There will be tea, coffee, homemade scones, gingerbread and shortbread on offer. And I have checked with Charlie and gluten-free is available!
So if you are free between 3pm and 6pm next Wednesday, and would like to do something for our local charity, then order your tickets by calling 01603 622022. The Great Blooming Tea Party is held in association with the Norfolk Food and Drink Festival and it is sure to be a fantastic afternoon.
I look forward to seeing you all there.
