Pre Dinner Entertainment and Dining Experiences
Make it an evening to remember, with pre-dinner cocktails served to you at the demonstration table in the cookery school. Our mixologist, Ben Botham, will demystify the art of making a perfect cocktail and let you in on a few tricks of the trade. Every member of the group can also have a go at mixing their own cocktail – either one of the old classics or one of Ben’s more recent creations.
£25 per person (including cocktail), maximum group size 26.
Enjoy a pre-dinner glass of prosecco, while you enjoy the theatre of a 20 minute cookery demonstration in the cookery school. Your canapés are cooked and then served to you at the table, while your guests relax and soak up the atmosphere. There is a choice of themes, either Sushi served by our sushi chef Simon Phillips, or Modern British served by our cookery school chef Stephen Bulmer.
£25 per person (based on a group of 12), maximum group size 26.
Chef’s Table Dining Experiences
We are delighted to offer you the Chef’s Table demonstration dining experience, one of the first of its kind.
The dinner will be hosted by the Cookery School Chef Director, Stephen Bulmer formerly of Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons, who has worked at Michelin restaurants all over the world.
Guests will be able to enjoy the unique experience of seeing an expert at work, whilst at the same time being able to savour a delicious meal in the relaxed and informal surroundings of the demonstration cookery school kitchen. What is unique about the Chef’s Table at Swinton Park is that Steve will be cooking for these select guests and no other, without any of the usual distractions found in a commercial kitchen. The guests will have his undivided attention and will be able to converse with him throughout the evening should they choose, with plenty of tips and suggestions up his sleeve for those wanting to take some home with them.
The Menu du Jour meal will start with an introduction by Steve to the ingredients selected for that evening’s meal and the dishes he will be preparing, during which time champagne and canapés will be served. Steve will then demonstrate each course as the guests observe, which will then be served to them at the demonstration table.
The dining experience costs £360 for 8 guests, with a maximum number of 10 guests attending (£45 for each additional guest). Drinks are not included in this package price and to be an additional charge.
