Supper club Lupercalia: February's myths & rituals

We are celebrating our love for food, for stories and myths and for each other with an evening in honour of Februa, Roman goddess who who gave this month her name and her ‘febris,’ fever of love. Before the celebration of a Roman Priest executed for performing secret marriages, St Valentine, came plenty of February stories. The old English, the Saxons and the Romans who occupied this country all brought with them tradition, ritual, and belief about this important month heralding Spring and new life. 

Our menu will tell those stories using produce from our garden and beyond. Goat's curd to commemorate the sacrifices made at Lupercalia for good health and fertility, leeks for visions of future love, roots to symbolise the life that has been taking place underground during the cold and brutal winter months as we welcome the gradual return of the light. Bramble wine & violet symbol for February in Old English tradtiions. All washed down with complimentary wine for the table.
