After the joy of hosting our Midsummer Feast last month we’re back for more summer celebrations at The Edible Flower farmhouse.
We’re absolutely delighted to be teaming up for this event with curious cook and finder of weird and wonderful wild things to eat, Clare McQuillan. A lifelong food obsessive, Clare has just recently jumped from a desk job into pursuing her interest full time catering for events, leading foraging walks and helping out at outstanding Comber Deli Indie Fude.
