A five course dinner inspired by Richard Olney's classic cookbook with chef Oli Launay (Moro, St John, Auberge de Chassignolles) and award winning sommelier and wine writer Ruth Spivey.
American writer, painter and cook Richard Olney lived in the village of Sollies-Toucas in Provence for four decades. His love of wine and rustic French cooking, as well as his dedication to seasonality and refined simplicity have influenced generations of chefs and food writers.
The evening will be a celebration of la cuisine de bonne femme and promises to be un grand gueuleton a tout casser!
"Gueuleton cannot be translated in a word; it means a meal among friends comporting many dishes and washed down by great quantities of better-than-ordinary-wine and accompanied by much gaiety and laughter"
Richard Olney, Simple French Food
Tickets for the dinner are £40.
