Christmas Dining and Workshops
Dining at The Riverford Field Kitchen is something to remember at any time of year, but at Christmas it is the perfect place to come for a relaxed, festive feast with family and friends in beautiful surroundings.
Our Christmas feast is served on generous serving platters for guests to pass around and share with family & friends. The festive meat will change daily and it will be accompanied by the perfect Christmas veg with a Riverford twist!
Our legendary puddings will take on the festive spirit and you can still have 1 big serving or 2 smaller servings of two puddings!
We can cater for small intimate groups or larger parties wanting to celebrate together.

Christmas Foodie Gift Workshop
Join our expert hosts Pam and Liz - not officially Christmas elves but practically the next best thing! They will guide you through making the most wonderful festive sweet treats and those all important Boxing Day chutneys to accompany your Stilton or leftover turkey.
You will learn how to make:
Christmas mincemeat - what Christmas would be complete without mince pies?
Chocolate peppermint creams - perfect accompaniment for Christmas movies
Spicy pear chutney - every Boxing Day buffet needs a good chutney
Balsamic onions - cheese's best friend!
Pam and Liz will also do a demo on how to make Limoncello and of course, you will be the expert tasters!
Of course, you may want to take your goodies home to enjoy yourself, but if you do want to give as a gift, we will provide gift packaging for you to create a beautiful Christmas present for someone special.
Christmas Wreath Making Workshop
The finishing touch to any festive decorations has to be a traditional Christmas door wreath.
Join our head gardener Penny Hemmings as she guides you through how to make your own wreath, bursting with fragrant evergreens, sprigs of holly and red berries.
Mulled wine and Riverford mince pies included, as well as your festive masterpiece to take pride of place on your front door.
The Perfect Christmas Veg Cookery Demo
Join us for a festive cookery demo at the Riverford Field Kitchen.
Sit back with a mulled wine and mince pie as our chefs show you some nifty tricks and inspiring recipe ideas to cook your Christmas veg to perfection – all with a Riverford twist, of course!
The day starts at 10.30am and will cover a range of festive dishes using seasonal veg straight from our fields, plus plenty of hints & tips and time for questions. And of course lots of tastings!
The fun, two hour cookery demon will be followed by a wonderful, Riverford Christmas lunch in the Field Kitchen.
