September Secret Dinner

What an equally gorgeous and mucky summer we've had.  Bad for getting a tan but lovely for growing things that need sun and rain.  I've put the menu for the next secret dinner together now and it's just time to get out and start foraging!

Dinners will be September 16th and 17th at 7 pm and the menu is as follows (barring any problems with the foraging).  I did sample some of the cress growing in Bushy Park and it was sharp, peppery perfection!
