Sam Bilton’s Repast at Blanch House Brighton

Sam Bilton’s Repast at Blanch House Brighton

Thursday 6th September 7.00 – 10.30

£80 per person including a Pommery Champagne with each course and welcome glass with canapés Place are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

As part of the Brighton & Hove Food and Wine Festival, Blanch House is delighted to welcome the Repast supper club this autumn. Cooked up in Haywards Heath, the club takes its diners on a journey through history with its innovative menus which reflect culinary heritage from across Britain and Europe.

Each month Sam Bilton hosts intimate dinners inspired by historical events, eras or people using old recipes to create modern interpretations of the food eaten by our ancestors and we can’t wait to sample the menu she’s created especially for us. Her historical food has won her and husband Neil a place in the 2017 final of Channel 4’s My Kitchen Rules, so we’re in good hands.

‘We are really excited to be sponsoring the Brighton & Hove Food and Wine Festival again this year and as part of the activities planned, welcoming Sam to Blanch House. We’ve been following with interest Repast as a concept and think it will lend itself brilliantly to the quirky heritage feel of the hotel. We’ll be showcasing some of Pommery’s signature varietals, including Pommery Apanage which is exclusive to Blanch House in Brighton & Hove, paired to perfection with historic recipes. This is a first at the hotel and we’re very much looking forward to the event.’

If that weren’t enough to whet your appetite, Sam will be pairing each course with a varietal of Pommery Champagne including Pommery’s Apanage Brut which is exclusive to Blanch House hotel in Brighton & Hove.
