August Supper Event


The Open Door is delighted to announce our August Supper Event -happening on Friday August 30th. 

Once again the event will happen in my home, a Victorian era house, where you will sit alongside others -some friends, some strangers...strangers who will most likely be new friends by dessert. 
You will each share in a seven course edible adventure, of seasonal ingredients, hand picked & home made by Aoife.
See you there!
