Noma cuisine comes to Yorkshire
York cookery school The Cookery Rooms will be celebrating Yorkshire Day on 1 August with a one-off tasting menu created by Sam Miller, second chef at the S.Pellegrino World’s Best Restaurant, Noma in Copenhagen. Sixteen diners will get the chance to see Miller in action as he prepares an eight-course tasting menu, which combines Noma’s style with seasonal Yorkshire ingredients. The menu, including a wine flight, is priced at a
modest £75 per head.
Budget fine wines
Budget British holiday company Butlins is to begin offering bottles of Chateauneuf-du-Pape and Krug Champagne in a bid to meet growing consumer demand for fine wines. The launch of the company’s first ever fine wine menu is accompanied by tasting notes written in ‘true Butlins style’ to appeal to guests, with a ‘seductive, charming and approachable’ red compared to George Clooney for easy reference. Butlins managing director Richard Bates hopes the wine list will encourage consumers to head to Butlins for a ‘good Burgundy or top-notch bubbly’.
Free beach huts
The Norfolk Royale Hotel in Bournemouth is offering guests staying more than four nights complimentary use of a beach hut for the duration of their stay. The break, which is geared toward families, also includes access to the hotel’s health club and spa, as well as free swimming lessons for children.
Kids pizza making
Glasgow-based Italian restaurant Paperino’s will launch a Pizza Playtime Summer Sunday Series to keep kids occupied and give parents a welcome break during the summer holidays. Every Sunday in August, Paperino’s chefs will show six to 12 year olds how to create their own pizzas, while parents can enjoy their own meal in peace with a complimentary glass of wine.
