We are excited to be hosting first generation farmer and chef, Julius Roberts on Wednesday 8 November, for a special event held to celebrate the launch of his new cookbook, The Farm Table.

In association with Winstone’s Bookshop in Sherborne, Castle Gardens will stage the event in The Butterfly House from 7pm, where Julius will share tales from his Dorset-based farm and demonstrate recipes taken from the new book.

Making the most of simple ingredients, Julius’ recipes are thoughtful yet simple to prepare, all created to help home cooks to reconnect with nature and the seasons.

Having grown up in London, before embarking on his journey to become a fully-fledged, self-taught smallholder, Julius is able to share honest stories of the unique challenges and joys he encountered while becoming a first generation farmer, alongside the recipes he created along the way.

Tickets cost £5 per person and are available to purchase from Winstone’s Bookshop on Cheap Street in Sherborne, as well as online shop.winstonebooks.co.uk.

Doors will open at 6.30pm for a 7pm start. We hope to see you there.
