But fear not! If you missed out on attending both Plate to Page Weimar and Plate to Page Tuscany, hope is at hand. Despite having been manically busy for the past few weeks finalising details and sponsors for Plate to Page Tuscany, we have not lost sight of the future and have recently managed to secure a wonderful venue for our next Plate to Page workshop in Spring 2011. And where is this going to be, you might ask? Drum roll please... Ladies and gentlemen, the first Plate to Page of 2012 will be held in Somerset, England!
The house is only an hour from Bristol International airport and two hours by train from London's Paddington station. The Somerset countryside is full of places worth a visit, like the Cheddar Gorge caves and the Roman city of Bath. Nearby Taunton Country Market on a Satruday morning is foodie heaven, with locally made cakes, pies, cookies, jams, marmalades, chutneys and seasonal produce always available. The area is also dotted with artisanal brewers, cider-makers and smokehouses - and don't forget that this is Cheddar cheese country! Bring a big suitcase :)
We are still taking care of some final details before we open up registrations for Plate to Page Somerset, but to be sure not to miss the announcement that registratrations have begun, make sure you subscribe to our RSS feed or our Facebook fan page, or follow us on Twitter.
We hope to welcome you to Somerset in 2012!
