Drinking, Feasting and Raving at Dewsall Court

Where The Wild Things Rave Party…

Wedding and event venue Dewsall Court in Herefordshire has an amazing reputation for excellent service, beautiful grounds and serving delicious locally sourced food; so when we found out they were hosting a ‘Where The Wild Things Rave‘ party, we wanted to find out more.

It promised to be a summer night of adventure, discovery, feasting and raving… a night of immersive dinning, music and entertaining. Chase cocktails curated by mixologist Thom Williams would be served alongside the 5 course dinner which included pigeon cooked over apple wood, dandelion, mint, molasses and pork crackling AND a blackcurrant jelly fluff pudding with elderflower and angelica cream, ginseng and ginger root crunch… oh MY!!!

Where the wild things rave was a truly magical event. Having never been to Dewsall Court and knowing very little about it, I was taken back on arrival by its sheer charm and beauty. 

We were welcomed with cocktails served by a mixologist wearing a crown and a fox

Toasted Oatmeal Ice Cream Recipe by Nevie Pie Cakes

Delicious Summer Ice Cream Recipe…

Today the lovely Natasha from Nevie Pie Cakes shares with us this fab ice cream recipe… Toasted Oatmeal Ice Cream.

In this weather its the perfect summer treat… Im so hungry even looking at these photos!!

Natasha…

This is a recipe I used to make as a teenager, it is from an old Marks and Spencer cookbook that I still treasure.

It sounds unusual, but it is delicious, and you can fool yourself into believing that it is healthy, as it contains oats! The oats and sugar turn into praline, and give the ice cream a gorgeous nutty, toffee taste. You must really watch the oat/sugar mixture while it is under the grill, as it burns very easily!

I had intended to make use of my ice cream maker, but it had lain idle for so long in the back of a cupboard that the liquid in the freezer bowl had started to leak. So I used the old fashioned ‘taking it out of the freezer regularly and beating it’ method. You only need to do this three or four times, but just make sure that the ice cream is semi-frozen when you do, or it won’t be effective.

Try adding the ice cream to some chocolate cookies – they make the perfect ice cream sandwich!

Thanks Natasha! Who cares …

Flower Moon Party…

A few weeks back the lovely Sharon Cooper Photography attended Elmore Court’s Flower Moon Party; an evening to celebrate their recent renovations which include 8 new beautifully decorated bedrooms, plus a stylish bridal pad in the Coach House.

Elmore has been in the Guise family for over 750 years and it’s Anselm Guise, the current heir who transformed the estate from a private family home that needed work, into the stylish bohemian wedding venue it is today.  With his background of co-founding the Glade Festival and his wife Sarah being a co-founder of The Secret Garden Party, they have found the perfect alignment of being a great party pad but with all the luxury needs you would want for your big day.

I personally LOVE visiting Elmore; the incredible house, picture perfect grounds and the amazing team are everything you want from a cool wedding venue… a real home from home. When the invitation to attend the Flower Moon Party hit our desks we knew it was going to be a fun night! With a dress code of florals in honour of the May full moon (known as the Flower Moon,) guests were in …
