Demo kitchen: Beltane

Neil Forbes is back in the demo kitchen to celebrate the Celtic fire festival.

Honouring the coming of summer and the fertility of the year ahead, the ancient festival connects people to the land and produce and the changing of the season. It’s one of the largest events held in Edinburgh, home to Neil’s sustainable restaurant Café St Honoré—so expect some sparks to fly.

Neil’s menu will include:

Mussels, apple juice, thyme and cream

Wood pigeon salad with lentils, beetroot and creamed goats cheese

Brose with spring vegetables including asparagus, baby carrots 

Join Neil at the free cookery demonstration 12.30-2pm in the Market Hall for recipes, tips in the kitchen and some delicious tasters.
