Upcoming dates at Chesham

Duende pops into town

We’ve been planning a little venture into the big smoke for a while. OK it’s only a Metropolitan line away. But I can’t get all the pots and pans on the tube. ; )

Just trying now to get the right venue. There’s a separate twitter account for it, as I don’t want to bore people who are not interested in eating in town with it. If you’re interested, there’ll be updates on @duendechef on twitter.

New dates added for 2016

Duende is at The Court House, Berkhamsted on Friday 19th February. A few spaces freed up due to a cancellation.
