Package includes accommodation at Loveland Farm’s eco retreat pods which boast a fully equipped private kitchen and bathroom, plus a locally sourced breakfast hamper.



This special weekend hosted at Loveland Farm unites some of the south-west’s most passionate foodies for an intimate two-day workshop.

Learn about your food’s origins and discover the provenance of ingredients during this weekend workshop, where you’ll find wild garlic growing in this UNESCO area of outstanding beauty amongst much more, as well as working in the professional kitchen alongside Bjorn to first-hand experience his signature contemporary cuisine.

Chef Proprietor Bjorn Moen of Pattard Kitchen and photographer and Instagram guru Matt Inwood will take up residence for this unique masterclass. Perfect for foodies and bloggers who are keen to enhance their Instagram photography skills and embrace farm-to-fork cooking.

This rare event will see Bjorn throw open the doors of his Scandi-style barn restaurant to a small group of like-minded foodies to share his life-long passion for sustainable food fused with a contemporary outlook on the ever-changing food scene.

On the menu are expert insights and industry secrets, a masterclass session in bread making, foraging in the beautiful Devonshire countryside for wild herbs and preparing mouth-watering dishes alongside the professionals for the Saturday evening banquet meal. On Sunday, Instagram and photography expert Matt Inwood will kick off his engaging workshop with a presentation incorporating his approach to photography and a full guided tour of the Instagram app and its key features. Discussing everything from stories to algorithms to hashtags, there will be a hands-on demonstration of how to take photos on the phone and how to edit those images through the Instagram app. There will then be a practical session to put what you have learned into practice whilst Bjorn prepares a delicious BBQ featuring locally sourced meat and seasonal vegetables for the group to enjoy.
