Dinner at Field and Fork, Chichester
October 15, 2009
Field and Fork is run by husband and wife team Sam and Janet Mahoney. Both have worked for the Roux brothers, with Sam carrying out his apprenticeship in the kitchens at La Gavroche. Using local ingredients in uncomplicated yet full-flavoured dishes is what Sam’s cooking is all about. He doesn’t believe in cutting any corners. The meal will be preceded by a guided tour of the Fleming Scottish Colourists Exhibition. Comprised of four artists, Samuel John Peploe, Francis Campbell Boileau Cadell, George Leslie Hunter, and John Duncan Fergusson, the Scottish Colourists were among the most forward-thinking British artists of the twentieth century, combining a knowledge of contemporary French art with the painterly traditions of Scotland. Widely recognised as the finest collection of Scottish art in private hands, this is the first showing of the Fleming Collection in the south of England.
