It is always a true pleasure to host an event in our Kitchen Showroom space; so when Exeter Gin wanted to hold their intimate Crowdfunding launch for their brand, we, of course, wanted to be involved.

The guests arrived in glorious sunshine, were welcomed with Tapas...

We were delighted to be joined by Exeter Cookery School for an exciting pre-launch evening. The brainchild of Jim and Lucy Fisher, Exeter Cookery School is set to open it's doors later this year in a Grade II Listed building on the city’s historic Quayside.
Heading up the cooking, Jim was first inspired to cook in his early teens by watching 70s food icon Margueritte Patten, so much so that he created a three-course meal for his family at the age of just 13.
