The Modern Preserver with Kylee Newton. Wednesday 28 April 2021

Fully Booked

 Kylee Newton is The Modern Preserver.

After growing up in Taranaki, Kylee moved to London where in 2009 she established Newton & Pott, makers of Jams, Preserves and Chutneys. Newton & Pott uses the artisan methods of yesteryear, combined with imaginative and interesting flavour combinations to create a modern take on a classic idea. She shares many of her best recipes in her book The Modern Preserver - think Raspberry & Rose Jam - Bergamot Marmalade - Shallots pickled with Lavender - Spicy Beer or Bourbon Pickles. 

Newton & Pott developed a 'cult following' and Kylee's work and her recipes have appeared in The Guardian, The Telegraph and the Evening Standard to name a few. In 2016 Kylee won the Vegetable category of the Young British Food & Drink Awards which honours grassroots talent in the Food & Beverage Industries.  

Unfortunately (but fortunately for us) the arrival of Covid-19 saw most of the London based markets Newton & Pott supplied closed for the foreseeable future; so Kylee did what any smart kiwi would do - she came home for a while.....

We are absolutely delighted to be able to host Kylee for a night in our kitchen. Over the course of the evening Kylee will share her  years of experience (and trial and error) to allow you to create your own time-capsules in a jar! 

A note from Kylee:
"Preserving and longevity is close to my heart and my aim was to adopt this ecological awareness and adapt it to our modern hectic lives. By taking seasonal fruits and vegetables we endeavour to make them last longer with the humble approach of 'waste not, want not'."

We will be serving a grazing board over the course of the evening. We would love it if you would bring something sweet or savoury you have preserved yourself to share. At the conclusion of the evening we will swap these so everyone goes home with something different to try. Please note that this is not compulsory - so please don't go buy anything to bring along - we have loads made so will share these too.
