Chef’s Table launched at Swinton Park for 2009

Date: November, 2008

Swinton Park, the luxury castle hotel in North Yorkshire, has announced that it has launched a Chef’s Table dining experience, one of the first of its kind in the North East, available for both guests and non-residents.

The dinner will be hosted by the cookery school chef, Robert Taylor, who this year was awarded UK Chef of the Year 2008 by the Chaine de Rotisseurs. He has also trained with the celebrity TV chef Rosemary Shrager at the cookery school and worked under Simon Crannage in the award winning restaurant kitchen in the hotel.

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 Robert 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 Robert 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. Robert will then demonstrate each course as the guests observe, which will then be served to them at the demonstration table.

The Menu du Jour will be served at the Chef’s Table on selected Friday nights throughout 2009 and will cost £35 per person. A 25% discount applies to B&B rates for guests attending the Chef’s Table, and guests staying at the hotel on a DB&B basis can attend the Chef’s Table as an alternative to dinner in the restaurant.

A Press Night Chef’s Table will be held in January 2009, please contact Felicity Cunliffe-Lister if you would like further details.
