THE SPICE ROUTE: FROM ASIA TO NORFOLK
Ajay John, Samantha Mattocks & Sonia Duthie from MasterChef
This July, Norfolk’s own Samantha Mattocks (The Delicate Diner) will be joined by two of her fellow MasterChef contestants as they host a pop-up dining experience at the Old Hall Farm Cafe, near Bungay, Norfolk. Ajay John and Sonia Duthie, who both reached the quarter finals, will cook with Samantha to raise funds for The Boudicca Cancer Appeal.
The evening, which will be held on Saturday 20 July at 7pm, will focus on the flavour of the famed Spice Route, from its roots in India across Europe and the Middle East before its arrival in the UK. All three cooks will celebrate the very best of seasonal Norfolk produce in the menu.
Tickets cost £60, including cocktails and canapés on arrival followed by a six-course meal. Dietary requirements can be catered for, but please ensure that you confirm these with your booking.
Local wines will be available to purchase on the night.
Space is strictly limited – to book your ticket, see below.
