To celebrate International Women’s Day, D&D London are introducing a series of dinners entitled The Secret Diary of a Farm Girl, championing women in the farming industry. The first in the series will take place at New Street Grill and welcome Caroline Wheatley-Hubbard as resident farm girl for the evening, where she will speak on her experiences working as a female in the farming industry while guests are treated to tasty dishes. On Tuesday 12th March the three-course menu will be paired with wines from female winemakers.
On the menu, expect tasty starters of curried pigs head terrine with crackling apple sauce served beautifully with a glass of Ali Boit Boit et les 40 voleurs, a natural sparkling wine from Aligote and created by winemaker Agnès Paquet. For the main course, a crispy pork belly with black pudding hash and Josper grilled hispi cabbage is paired with a crisp glass of Arianna Occhipinti Il Frappato from Sicily, a natural wine produced by females in Italy’s Sicilian wine region. Treat yourselves to a decadent dessert of chocolate truffles and salted caramel fudge, while sipping on a stunning glass of Blandy's 10-Year-Old Malmsey Madeira with its rich caramel and honey flavours.
The next dinner in The Secret Diary of a Farm Girl series will take place during British Beef Week (1st-7th April) at Butlers Wharf Chop House. More information to be announced soon.
