The Wilderness Kitchen

Dinner by Ben Lippett - Friday 19:00-21:00 in The Wilderness Kitchen

Ben Lippett is a cook, food writer, and co-founder of Dr Sting's Hot Honey. Having spent years working at a spate of restaurants in the UK, USA and Australia – including a stint as a butcher in the Sussex Countryside – Ben made the leap to food writing. You'll now find him hosting dinners, writing recipes and at the helm of How I Cook, a weekly newsletter giving keen home cooks a chef's guide to tips, seasonal home cooking and culture recs.

In his Friday night supperclub he'll be curating an evening of music and food, with a one-off live set from pop-duo Kit Sebastian and Everybody Loves to Boogie bringing the good vibes to the start and end of the evening. The menu leans into the influences of the featured music, celebrating the symbiotic possibilities for music and dining to bring people together in a moment of communal joy and discovery.
