Our friends at Toast events have come up with the kind of talk we like - one that concludes with a feast of Hawksmoor goodies.
The Future of Meat is the chosen subject and they've brought together three experts on the topic: Hawksmoor executive chef Richard Turner, The Ginger Pig owner Tim Wilson, and Philip Lymbery, CEO of charity Compassion in World Farming and author of Farmageddon: The True Cost of Cheap Meat to chew it over.
Join them at Hawksmoor Guildhall for Bloody Marys to start and - following the debate - a sharing-style brunch using produce from The Ginger Pig. The team at Hawksmoor's brief: to show how meat can be used sparingly to create something feast-worthy. That means dishes such as pig cheek scrapple with grits, short-rib bubble and squeak, homemade baked beans, fried eggs, black pudding, hash browns and piles of toast with plenty of butter. Sounds good doesn't it?
