We’re organising another Come Dine With Me experience for a bit of fun and hopefully to raise some well needed funds. The idea is we’ll all meet for a three course meal on Saturday 13th February at 7.00 pm (The Saturday before Shrove Tuesday). We can’t provide the meal (but see below for some help) though we can provide you with friends to eat it with.

We’ll all meet via Zoom at 7.00 for a pre dinner drink and a chat. We will explain how the evening works and you will be ready to join your first group of diners for your starter.

But first, you need to come dressed for the occasion! To guide you through our suggested Carnival dress code, here is Tiffany. You can download her template here.

When we’ve enjoyed a drink together, you will be transported to your first venue (no driving involved – entirely environmentally friendly and Covid safe). You’ll eat your starter … then more chat, join a different group for the main course … you get the idea. We’ll all come back together for coffee.

Because it will be nearly Pancake Day, when you book your place at the table (below) we’re asking you to share any pancake making tips, favourite fillings, pancake stories … We’ll share them on this page and they can serve as conversation starters.

There’s no charge for this event but there will be ample opportunity to make a donation to St Mary’s via Pay Pal using your PayPal account if you have one, a credit card if not, (or we’ll be happy to take your money in any way you’d like to give it to us, including cheques, sent to the Rectory Office). Please let us know you’ll be coming by completing this simple form:

You’re very welcome to eat anything you like but to give you a bit of inspiration, and for even more fun, we’ve commissioned three chefs to make their TV chef debut. You’ll soon find a film below from each of these people that will guide you through their recipes. But remember, you are free to eat anything you like!
