Steve has worked with top chefs at Michelin restaurants all over the world and ran the Raymond Blanc Cookery school at Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons. As he cooks, he will entertain you with top tips and anecdotes from his career. Chef Table menus change for each event are based on different styles and themes of cooking such as French, Italian and Modern British, as well as Seasonal Dinner Parties.

What is unique about the Chef’s Table at Swinton Park is that Steve cooks just for the guests at the demonstration table, without the usual distractions found in a commercial kitchen. Guests at the table have his undivided attention and are able to converse freely with him throughout the evening, going home full of new tips and ideas.
