Join us for an evening in The Skip Garden one of London's quirkiest edible gardens for an evening of vegetarian feasting, maukin making and spell casting. We will be guided through the stories and rituals of Halloween by Nell Aubrey, a Historian of Medicine with a pathological interest in all things spooky, having
lived in a series of very creepy old houses.
Welcome bloody cocktail
Disguise course - before we settle down to feast a botanical mask to hide from evil spirits
Hasselback potatoes (we’ve already slashed our mawkins and exposed them to extreme heat.) smokey black or pinto beans, rocket and roast chicory, hazelnut and black olive dressing ( a bit like a chunky tapenade but with chicory and nuts as well.)
Grave Goods, feed your dead people to keep them quiet! Paper gifts to the spirits, worse one gets a prize!
Fennel & shitake broth w/ fennel, apple and radish rice paper roll (save apple seeds for below)
Fertility – superstitions and good fortunes
Sloe gin or amaretto & pumpkin or sweet potato petit fours (amaretto is from almonds whose flavour is shared by seeds and kernels containing arsenic, eg, peach, nectarine and apricot pits and apple seeds)
Chestnuts – crème de maron with pumpkin pie
Apples - apple seeds in the fire
