Talk title: Building communities through food.

Bernadette is an event producer and Founder of A Table Outside, a fine dining pop up that connects people with those who grow our food.

In this era of fast, cheap, processed food, we often don’t know where our food comes from and Bernadette is keen to address this by bringing people together in an immersive way to celebrate the cream of Surrey’s food and drink producers.

Dinners are held in farms, vineyards and other beautiful places in the Surrey Hills. At each event, award-winning local chef (and Masterchef finalist) Daniel Britten creates a menu around the food grown or raised in the field in which the table is set.

Previous venues have included The Birtley Estate in Bramley and High Clandon Estate Vineyard in East Clandon. Ticketed events are usually held once a month, year round with private and corporate dining also on offer.
