Ouseburn Farm Charity in Byker has launched a series of food events which includes an evening of sumptuous cuisine provided by some of the North East’s finest chef and culinary experts.

Served in the relaxed setting of the Farm, the monthly supper clubs are part of the Great Exhibition of the North 2018 Inspired By programme and will serve up freshly made food using local ingredients, providing guests with a demonstration of the quality of food available right here in the North East.

Due to popularity and high demand, the first supper club, which will be held at the Farm this Saturday is already a sell-out. Those diners lucky enough to buy tickets will be treated to a three-course meal specially prepared by Anna Hedworth of the Cook House in Newcastle.

The Cook House, which recently featured on the Channel 4 ‘Hidden Restaurants’ and Radio 4 Food Programmes, is a kitchen in neighbouring Ouseburn where visitors can eat, drink, work and relax.

Details for next month’s supper event have just been announced. Harissa Kitchen will be visiting to serve up a beautiful night of mouth-watering Mediterranean mezze boards and sharing platters. Supper will be served on Thursday 19 July from 7pm until 10.30pm and tickets cost £30 per person. Tickets are available to buy online at www.ouseburnfarm.org.uk/whatson

Chad Male, community and events fundraiser at Ouseburn Farm Charity, said: “We’re really excited to launch our first supper club this weekend with Anna Hedworth. The response has been excellent and has already sold out. We’re hoping next month’s event will be just as popular when we welcome Harissa Kitchen to the Farm to serve up some delicious Mediterranean cuisine. The idea behind our supper clubs is to bring the local community together, relax in the setting of the Farm, make friends and enjoy fantastic food prepared by some of the regions finest chefs and experts.

“Ouseburn Farm is a place for growing and we hope that these events will encourage people to come and visit the farm and try something a little bit different.”

A street food event has also been organised at the Farm on Saturday 11 August between 12 noon and 6pm. The free event is open to all ages and aims to bring together some of the North East’s finest culinary cooks and restaurants to celebrate everything about food.
