New Sushi Dinner event at Swinton Park’s Cookery School

Date: 23rd June, 2010

Swinton Park has launched a new cookery and dining experience at its Cookery School, Sushi Dining. The event will be run by a Yorkshire sushi expert, Simon Phillips, who has many years experience making sushi both in the UK and in the Far East.

The event will be run in the Cookery School demonstration kitchen and starts with an introduction to Japanese food and a demonstration, also with some hands on opportunities for those wanting to try. This is then followed by a sushi dinner which is made to order for each guest at the demonstration table. The focus of the meal will be on sushi, but also with yakitori, Japanese salad and tempura on the menu along with sake tasting.

A press Sushi Dinner is being held at the Cookery School on Tuesday 7th September, please let us know if you would like to attend.

The Sushi Dinner costs £45 per person and will be held on selected weekend dates – the first being 23rd October. A Sushi for Beginners Day Course will also be running in 2011. Simon will also be running Sushi events for private groups at Swinton Park and also demonstrating at the Alfresco Food Festival on 12th September.

Notes for the Editor :

  1. Swinton Park is a 30 bedroom luxury hotel with 4 Red Stars and 3 Rosettes for quality of food. It is the ancestral seat of the Earl of Swinton and is owned by the Cunliffe-Lister family, who opened it as a hotel in 2001.
  2. The hotel has a cookery school, with day, evening and residential courses running all year. The residential courses are run by the TV Celebrity chef, Rosemary Shrager.
  3. The gardens, including the four acre walled garden, have been extensively restored in recent years. The walled garden now grows over 60 varieties of seasonal herbs, fruit and produce. The hotel is committed to keeping food miles to an absolute minimum, with the majority of all other produce sourced by the hotel coming from the surrounding 20,000 acre estate and Yorkshire countryside.
  4. The hotel has a carbon neutral woodchip boiler, eco-laundry and many other environmental measures in place – winning awards for its green policies.
