Saturday 23rd November | £45 per person
The Dutch Barn, Owl Lodge, Lacock

Vaughan's Kitchen Apprentice, Aimee Applegate, is now in her final year of 'Specialised Chefs' at Bournemouth & Poole College.  This course was set up by the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts in order to provide training for young people with the passion and ability to work in fine dining and Michelin Star establishments.  There are only two colleges in the country where it runs. Earlier in the year this 'up and coming' young chef won gold and silver medals in high end competitions. 

Born and bred in Somerset, Aimee loves using local produce and is always ready to go foraging with Peter Vaughan, even in between busy events when most people would prefer to take a break.  She has planned a menu that features some of her home county's finest produce and will be happy to share with you their journey from farm to plate.

As well as preparing you some fabulous food, she also feels passionately that chefs have a responsibility to make sure that the ingredients they use are ethically sound and so would like to raise awareness of 'Compassion in World Farming'. This is a global charity that is working towards ending factory farmed meats, fish and dairy products.

Arrive at Owl Lodge for 7.00pm - 7.20pm 

Dinner commences 7.45pm - a three-course dinner in the Dutch barn, around the central fire pit.

Come dressed for November in the countryside!
