***** Pickled Joy! - Ryanski, 18 September 2012
‘I bought my mum and myself a session with Sara at the Pick and Pickle course she runs. My mum had no idea what she was coming to do, but we both had a brilliant time making chutneys, pickles and even marmalade (by special request!). Sara made the day thoroughly informative, enjoyable and provided very tasty meals and snacks throughout. A very good host, and we came away with knowledge, a new way to view our kitchens and best of all 4 jars of our very own made piccalilli, Chutney, Marmalade and more! Recommended!’
When & Where
Sara Ward, Hen Corner
‘Since moving into her West London home a few years ago, Sara Ward and her husband Andy have industriously set up Hen Corner, where they now have a stunning kitchen garden – with raised beds full of seasonal crops – fruit and nut trees, a flock of clucking hens and a beehive with busy bees hard at work making honey.’ Michele Jameson, Country Living Magazine
We are Hen Corner.
We love the bee keepers, the veggie bed diggers, the jam makers and cider drinkers, the chicken fanciers and the real bread bakers.
But not just in the deepest darkest countryside or the far, far away villages but right here in our cities and towns.
So, come on a course and join us on the journey…
