On Thursday the 8th of December at 3pm the secrets of some of Holker's top festive fayre will be revealed at an exclusive cookery demonstration.
Holker's very own master baker Lynne Hornby (responsible for Holker’s delicious cakes & bakes) & our resident “foodie” Judith Wren (of Holker Food Hall fame) will be sharing their secrets for the perfect Christmas feast. Watch the masters at work then tuck in!
Lynne will make and bake a range of Christmas Fayre, using seasonal ingredients, some you will know and some you may not! They will guide you through all the steps and answer all those questions you’ve been meaning to ask. Amongst the goodies being produced are:
The Ilex Bar & BrasserieOpen for lunches - including a very special Sunday lunch -
This weekend’s damp weather didn’t affect the fiery fun at Holker with a full house for the chilli eating competitions hosted by Darth Naga. A packed Courtyard watched on as 10 competitors (on each day) took part in the lively competition. Saturday’s competition was the most entertaining yet with Darth commenting it was best one he had ever hosted - humorous contestants were encouraged by the lively crowd - with Jordan from Barrow taking centre stage. Joint winners took the trophy on Saturday and Ed Duffy was crowned Sunday’s winner after reaching around 250,000 scovilles.
