Once upon a Gingerline…
HQ Winter 2012-13
On winter’s wind a message sent, then off the merry makers went. At journey’s end a night began; a magic tale of feast and fun. All black and white and in their best, to brave a gastronomic quest ...
Led through the mushroom caves and into a hidden magical wood, our diners entered their own secret culinary fairytale. Held spellbound by a whispering lunar host and ravenous with mysterious appetite, they devoured course after course of a succulent forest feast. With taste buds tingling and senses afire, the guests traded secrets with Rumpelstiltskin, drank ‘potions of plenty’ and explored the secrets of the ‘cabinets of curiosity’.
