Event description

Description


"The craftsman’s tools are not sentimental trinkets or charms, but honed pieces of equipment that enable the craftsman to reproduce detail with precision."

We often pass over the everyday aspects of our lives, taking for granted where we live and how we eat. Step inside Walmer Yard for a supper of seasonal produce, and learn to recognise the craftsmanship that goes into creating both food and home.


Co-hosted by Natoora founder Franco Fubini, designer of Walmer Yard Fenella Collingridge and chef turned ceramicist Dan Cox, this unique supper will draw connections between the genuine artistry of growing exceptional fruit and vegetables and the decade of design choices that have made Walmer Yard a uniquely crafted home.


Natoora supports independent growers whose traditional growing methods and careful process of seed selection represent genuine craftsmanship. The menu on the night will be shaped by the incredible contours of their produce and will mirror the creativity involved in creating the four houses that make up Walmer Yard.




The Menu

The evening's menu will celebrate the craftmanship that goes into growing truly incredible fruit & vegetables. It will be centred around a three course seasonal sharing menu, thoughtfully paired with natural wines.






Invited guests

Hosted by Walmer Yard's Fenella Collingridge, Natoora founder Franco Fubini and ceramicist Dan Cox, speakers who will share their wealth of knowledge of craft, architecture and food.

Fenella Collingridge

Fenella Collingridge graduated with honours at the architectural association and has a first class degree in painting from Camberwell School of Art. She has taught architecture at the University of East London, the Royal College of Art, the Architectural Association and the Bartlett School of Architecture. For the past nine years Fenella has collaborated with Peter Salter in developing the design and construction of the houses at Walmer Yard. In parallel she has run a research project, Saturated Space, with the painter Antoni Malinowski, to explore the relationship between colour, tone, texture and form in architecture.

Dan Cox

After cooking in some of the most influential kitchens in the county, Dan Cox decamped to Crocadon, Natoora's 120-acre organic farm in Cornwall, where he now plans to open a restaurant within the courtyard buildings. Dan's restaurant will be supplied entirely by Crocadon farm and will also have its own microbrewery and pottery for local ceramicists. Working in collaboration with local potters, Dan’s ceramics are shaped in design and material by his surroundings. Each piece is thrown with Dobles Cornish clay and hand-finished with ash glazes, which are made by Dan by burning foraged and waste materials from the farm.

Franco Fubini

Franco founded Natoora in 2004 in a bid to restore flavour, transparency and seasonality to a broken food system. Since then he has created a growing community that connects responsible growers and their seasonal produce with the most influential chefs in London, Paris and New York. Committed to seed selection, traditional growing techniques and exceptional flavour, Franco is driving a food system revolution that elevates the growing artistry of committed producers to its rightful place.
