We have worked alongside some hugely creative chefs over the years on events from London to Cornwall. 

So we Thought, why not invite them down to Bread and Flowers HQ and ask them to cook for the locals.  After all, Salisbury isn’t exactly the gourmet capital of the south.  Remarkably, they come and deliver some amazing, original and unique food with great humour and gusto.  But you need to be on the mailing list to get in on the action, and you need to book fast.  Fifty percent of seats for Matt hew Pennington sold within 90 seconds of the email landing.
