Marguerite Patten Charity Lunch

by Sam Bilton on October 18, 2015 No comments

I will be helping the Guild of Food Writers celebrate the life of Marguerite Patten on 4th November (which would have been her 100th birthday). I have taken inspiration for this retro menu from her 1972 book Cooking Today and will be donating the profits to the Anthony Nolan Trust. This charity was dear to Marguerite’s heart as she lost her grandson to leukaemia earlier this year shortly before she herself passed away.


Tickets for this special sumptuous 3 course lunch are £25 and include entry into a raffle with prizes from Black Dog Hill Vineyard and Field & Forrest. You can book a ticket by emailing me at but be quick as there are only 12 seats available!
