We suppose it is fair to say that everyday life at All Hallows revolves around food. Lisa will admit to being a ‘feeder’ and has been known to be planning what is for supper tomorrow even before today’s breakfast has been served. Whether you are joining us for a creative class or enjoying a Dorset holiday, we will want to make sure that you feel at ease, gather around the table and relax over a great meal.
Breakfast is regarded as being the most important meal of the day, and after a peaceful sleep we want you to have a great start to your morning. The menu changes daily and will include fresh fruit, yoghurt and granola all ready so that you can help yourself. This will be followed by a variety of cooked dishes and normally we suggest that you have a peek at the menu so you can let us know your preferences, but if your change your mind don’t worry – everything is cooked to order.
If you are joining one of our classes, lunch has normally been prepared during the morning and then we will enjoy this together in the family room beside the kitchen. Or during the warmer months, if you prefer, we will sit outside in the walled garden. At supper we like to serve everything on large platters, ideal for everyone to pass and share, rather than individual plated meals. So imagine an informal style set in a rustic farmhouse rather than fine dining.
Lisa is a Slow Food Chef so sourcing our produce and ingredients is important to the team at All Hallows. We love local but it has to taste great too!
Artisan treats from further afield and dishes cooked slowly in the AGA, after being made from scratch in our kitchen, bring a smile to our faces and we like nothing more than to share this way of life with our guests.
