Saltwood on the Green backs NSPCC castle plant fair24-04-2015
Saltwood on the Green restaurant is backing the NSPCC's annual fund raising Garden & Plant Fair at Saltwood Castle on Saturday 2nd May, by putting a special Chocolate Brownie dish on its menu. The restaurant will donate the proceeds of the £5 dish sold all week from 2nd May to the charity.
“Being an America, I come from a land where chocolate brownies have near religious status, and these ones come guilt-free as they’re all for a very good cause,” said Saltwood on the Green chef-owner Jeff Kipp.
Chef Jeff’s chocolate brownie recipe is a tantalising creation with malted ice cream with a caramalised chocolate sauce.
The Garden & Plant Fair offers visitor a unique opportunity to see inside the grounds of the historic Saltwood Castle, the former home of historian and author the late Rt Hon Alan Clark MP, which is not normally opened to the public. The event, now in its 13th year, is held by king permission of Alan’s widow, Jane Clark, who owns the restaurant’s freehold. Last year the fair raised £12,000 for vulnerable children.
As well as having more than 20 stalls to browse, visitors can also explore the picturesque castle’s moat, dungeons, battlements and secret garden, as well as seeing Alan Clark's classic car collection. Refreshments will available.
Saltwood Castle, Hythe, Kent CT21 4QU. Entry costs £6 on the door and is free for under 16s. The event lasts 10.00am to 4.00pm. Parking is free but limited.
