An Evening with Tom Kerridge
We are delighted to be hosting a very special evening at River Cottage HQ with Michelin-starred chef Tom Kerridge.
With just 64 tickets available, this is set to be a really brilliant evening, centred around a specially created three course menu designed by Tom himself. Tom’s skills and experience over the years, not least achieving 2 Michelin stars at The Hand and Flowers and 1 Michelin star at sister pub The Coach in Marlow, will be evident at the dinner as you’ll enjoy delicious dishes full of flavour.
After enjoying a welcome drink and canapés, you’ll have the chance to meet Tom before taking your seats for the evening.
Before dinner, Tom will tell you about his culinary journey and his latest book ‘Lose Weight for Good’, discussing how he managed to lose an impressive 12 stone in the past four years. Tom was always known for his love of butter and decadent interpretations of ‘the classics’ at his 2 Michelin Starred pub, The Hand and Flowers. Through his weight loss journey, he has sought to create recipes that are just as delicious as his decadent classics but healthier without compromising on flavour and enjoyment.
Tom will introduce the evening's menu, before leaving you to enjoy the meal.
Tickets for this exclusive evening include a welcome drink, canapés, three course meal, half a bottle of wine, coffee and petits fours.
We ask guests to arrive for 6.30pm, ready to be transported down to the farm by tractor and trailer! The evening will draw to a close around 11.00pm.
