‘How to eat your Christmas tree…’ is TBC’s annual 5 course evergreen-themed feast, which explores eating the edible heroes of our forests – Christmas trees!
Evergreen trees are pillars of winter, as they stand tall and thriving through minus temperatures and snow – their scent reminiscent of Christmas. In folk medicine, they are a symbol of strength and used at this time of year to ward off colds and boost our immune systems. But come January, we see sad, wilted Christmas trees lining the streets, cast off and disused. During a 4 course meal, conifers are showcased in a multitude of exciting and unusual ways that compliment more celebrated ingredients and flavours. Diners will leave feeling inspired to extend the life of their Christmas tree, perhaps by nibbling on it, after this dining experience!
The supper club has been running since Christmas 2015 and has received press from BBC News, BBC Radio 4, BBC Radio 5Live, BBC Wales, BBC Lincoln, BBC West Midlands, Talk Radio, Monocle, VICE, ITV News, Heart Radio, Eurostar Magazine, Timeout London, London Metro, The Daily Mail and Mould Magazine.
