There’ll be seatings at 6pm and 8pm. Bookings are required.

Soup Shop x Clementine Day

Clementine Day, home chef and author of Coming Together, will put together a winter menu with Soup Shop, a pop-up consignment store that also offers soup, on Saturday June 22 and Sunday June 23 from 11am to 4pm.

Zackary Furst at Fenton

Note: This event has passed
Fenton, the Carlton cafe and bistro that takes the paddock-to-plate mentality very seriously, is linking up with Bar Liberty head chef Zackary Furst for a lamb feast on Sunday June 16 from 3pm.

They’ll use the whole lamb to make smoked lamb sausages, lamb bigos (a hearty Polish stew) and offal pierogies (dumplings). For the non-lamb eaters out there, there will be pierogies stuffed with winter greens, krupnik (barley) soup and pickles and kraut from the community garden for everyone.
