Learn the secrets of how to make the most of seasonal fruits with Alice McIlhagger of Brambleberry Jams in the Kitchen Barn at Larchfield Estate. In an informal, interactive workshop, Alice will demonstrate the secrets to making raspberry and plum jam using traditional methods of small hand-cut batches in stainless steel open pans. If you've ever wondered just how quick and simple it is to make homemade potato bread, then Alice will show you how and give you tips of how to cook them at home as a weekend crowd-pleaser.

You won't leave hungry as naturally you'll get to sample the fruits of your labour before leaving.

Bio on Alice McIlhagger, Brambleberry Jams

Bread, jam making and using seasonal produce, much of it grown in the home garden, are in Alice's blood as she grew up helping her grandmother making jams and helping in their garden. She now has her own fruitful garden and bread making is part of her daily routine. 

Alice trained and worked as a Geography Teacher before a period in Planning Consultancy. She turned her passion for jam-making from a past-time to a business when her youngest child started nursery and she has gone from strength to strength since, earning Great Taste Awards for her 3 dessert sauces and latterly 2 Stars for Salted Caramel Dessert Sauce in the 2018 Great Taste Awards.
