Fernhill Dinners are an ongoing experiment in Social Dining.
Each menu is unique and created on the day with fresh ingredients, some favourites will be served again.
About once a month The Dinner Lady hosts and cooks a five course dinner in her own kitchen…
… and serves up to 12 guests at an antique mahogany dining table.
Guests can anticipate an array of experimental dishes, most have never been cooked before.

Next Fernhill Dinner will be on Saturday 30th July.
The food will have a French influence as we have just returned from six weeks in the South of France.
The inspiration for this event is the art of Max Ernst. We went to see a wonderful exhibition of his work at the Paul Valery Musee in Sete. As I absorbed his paintings I felt filled with joy and went around smiling. Other visitors were similarly affected. We were all wandering around grinning at each other.
So for this dinner I will prepare and serve food that makes me feel happy and hope it has that effect on you to. We might even have a little slide show and some French background music.
We will start with pre dinner cocktails at 6.30 p.m.
You can book now.
With warm wishes and hoping to see you soon
The Dinner Lady
The Inspiration for the dinner on May 21st is a sculpture by Lucy Mathews now sited at Fernhill. People People People. We are not going to eat people the food will be an autumnal feast and will be served by candle light. Have a look at the photos from the last dinner to wet your appetite. All the recipes for the next dinner have been given to me personally by friends and family and I will share them with guests – People People People.
