How is it already Wednesday? Last week was crazy getting the last bits of the house finished, trying to push the builders out the door just as I was opening the doors to a lovely bunch of journalists for our press evening. I was flying by the seat of my pants and running around high on adrenaline. We managed to pull it all together at the very last second and it was a great success I'm pleased to say. It's amazing what you can get done under pressure!
The night was very intimate with about 10 journalist and bloggers as I wanted them to get a real sense of what a House Curious workshop is all about. We gave them a sample of our first cookery workshop, The Ultimate Dinner Party Menu with Anna Barnett taking place on the 17th June. If you want to snap up the last couple of tickets then click here
Below is a sneak peek of the Ginger Pig Slow Roasted Lamb and Black Rice Salad with Green Harissa that was on the menu. This is an absolute show stopper and will have any guest in awe.
Everyone got into the spirit pretty quickly thanks to the Absolut Elyx cocktails called Swedish Death Nettle. Sounds pretty harsh but it's the perfect summer cocktail. It was a great sight seeing everyone chatting and cooking together. It's an extraordinary moment when you are so engrossed in what you are doing that you forget about your troubles from the day and that's what House Curious is all about. It's about losing yourself in the moment and finding happiness in the simple things like the act of cooking and sharing a meal together.
If you want to see more from the night head over to Moregeous who wrote a great overview of the night.
I'm having so much fun curating these events and I can't wait to share more with you soon. We have just launched our Candle and Calligraphy workshop, which is happening 10th July. For tickets and info click here.
Have a great week and stay curious.
