Tom Kerridge to collaborate with West Country chefs

Related tags: England, South west england

Tom Kerridge is to collaborate with some of the biggest chefs from the west of England for a series of one-off dinners later this year.

The chef is launching a West Country Week at The Shed, the private dining space in Marlow run by the team from his two Michelin-starred pub The Hand & Flowers.

Those taking part include Peter Sanchez-Iglesias from Casamia, Bristol, Michael Wignall from Devon’s Gidleigh Park, and Simon Hulstone from The Elephant in Torquay.

Kerridge will work with the chefs to create a tasting menu made using West Country produce, which will be cooked in front of guests in The Shed’s open kitchen.

Tickets cost £350 per person, inclusive of VAT, and The Shed can accommodate up to eight people for each event.

Kerridge will also host a series of ‘Dopamine Diet’ lunches from 27 February – 3 March, cooking with produce designed to trigger the ‘happy hormone’ in the brain.

The collaborations come ahead of Kerridge’s plans to open his first London restaurant​ at the luxury Jumeirah Carlton Tower hotel later this year.

It will be the chef’s third restaurant following his two Marlow openings The Hand and Flowers and The Coach - which was voted the fourth best pub in Britain by the Top 50 Gastropub Awards in 2016.
