In conjunction with Algy’s Farm Shop in Bintree, between Foulsham and Bawdeswell, chef Julian Biggs, with photographer Ian Aitken, are putting on a special menu to welcome in the new asparagus season.

The family-friendly pop up will be set in a rustic setting with tressle tables and benches, with a menu consisting of four courses - of which three will include asparagus.

Visitors will be encouraged to pick their own asparagus from the field where Algy’s team will be available to explain all about the gem of the vegetable world.

A local beer, brewed specially for the event, will be available, as well as natural wines, local cheese, fish, meat, vegetables, and locally foraged food.

Mr Aitken said: “This is an incredible opportunity for people to not have to travel out of Norfolk to taste the work of one of England’s most sought after chefs at a very affordable price. Places are limited so I would advise anyone to book early.

“Each course will be hearty and super tasty. It’s all about the food.”

The event takes place on May 5 and 6. All four courses can be purchased for £25 or individually at £7.50. To book, ring Algy’s on 01362 683893.
