A delicious homegrown feast prepared and cooked by the fantastic Mark & Lia.

A little bit about the “pear”…

Mark has written seven award-winning books, including A Year at Otter Farm which won Andre Simon Food Book of the Year 2014, and A Taste of the Unexpected which won the Guild of Food Writers’ Food Book of the Year 2011, and a number of books for River Cottage. He created Otter Farm in order to encourage people to consider growing unusual and forgotten food along with the best of the familiar.

Lia Leendertz is an award-winning garden writer who appears regularly in The Guardian and The Telegraph and in gardening magazines. After studying at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Edinburgh, Lia went into garden journalism and worked for several years on gardening magazines before turning her hand to freelance writing. She now lives in Bristol with her husband, two children, and two house rabbits, and enjoys growing her own food in a back garden in among the flowers, as well as on her allotment.

homegrown is GIY’s new series of seasonal long-table dinners at GROW HQ featuring visiting chefs who share our GROW COOK EAT ethos. The event showcases their talents and gets them to build on the HQ story by delivering a very special seasonal feast for just 55 diners.

Price includes a 4-course meal and a complimentary drink on arrival.
