The event will feature former River Cottage head chef Tim Maddams cooking one of the dishes himself in front of our guests; Pitfield London is an eclectic emporium of contemporary homewares and vintage curiosities owned by interior designer Shaun Clarkson – an ideal place to come together to celebrate local, seasonal food and cooking.
