Chelmsford Opening Festival: The Apple Orchard Cider Tasting
Think you know your Scrumpy from your Bulmers and your Pink Ladies from your Granny Smiths? Here’s your chance to find out.
As part of our opening festival, we’re hosting an evening of conversation and cider tasting with apple expert and author of The Apple Orchard, Pete Brown.
Pete Brown writes on food and drink, including Man Walks into a Pub, Three Sheets to the Wind, Shakespeare’s Local and Hops and Glory. He won the 2015 Fortnum and Mason Food and Drink Award for best online drink writer. His discriminating palate has led him to be a judge in the Great Taste Awards and the Radio 4 Food and Farming Awards, and a frequent contributor to Radio 4's Food Programme.
When Pete started exploring the subject of cider, that most misunderstood and under-appreciated of drinks, three things happened to him. He fell under the spell of orchards; he became obsessed with apples; and he discovered that he had developed a severe allergy to them. Learn all about his epic journey around the world and through history to learn more about this enchanting fruit, and enjoy some of the fermented version yourself!
