Adam Byatt of Trinity restaurant in Clapham heads the list of guest stars who will cook one-off meals at Gusbourne winery’s chef series this summer. Each chef will cook a single lunch and dinner to be served in the garden room at The Nest, the visitor centre overlooking Gusbourne’s vineyards at Appledore, on the edge of Romney Marsh in Kent.
Daniel Smith of the Fordwich Arms near Canterbury, Kieran Reilly from Tom Kerridge’s Hand & Flowers in Marlow and Gary Cutcliffe from Tom Sellers’s Restaurant Story in Southwark will also be preparing meals designed to complement Gusbourne’s range, led by its well-known sparkling wines as well as a still pinot noir and a chardonnay.
The dates for both lunch (£115 per head) and dinner (£125) are April 29 (Hand & Flowers), May 20 (Trinity), June 24 (Fordwich Arms) and September 19 (Story). Gusbourne’s chef series was launched in 2018, and all meals begin with a wander through the vineyard.
