What is a Lost Supper?
Lost Suppers are about connections, the connection between people, the soil, the planet and food. In the current climate it’s never been more important to talk about food miles and eating from the land has always been the way at Heligan, that’s what it was built for.
The Kitchen Garden sits just 157 yards from the kitchen and grows around 4.5 tonnes of vegetables and fruit per year. Home Farm hosts an array of rare breeds and provides a small supply of meat each year. None of this could ever be enough to feed the 3000 visitors per day but here we are celebrating the fruits of our labour in innovative and sometimes surprising ways.
The menu is never published beforehand as it is written after the gardeners have listed what’s available or what’s in season, which makes it completely ingredient led and 5 out of 7 courses will always be vegetarian.
Our Lost Suppers will be held within the Heligan Kitchen Conservatory. Doors will open at 6:30pm with a welcome drink for all upon arrival.
This evening will also be featuring live music by Nick Mears.
