Join prestigious retailer Fortnum & Mason for an exciting new dinner series featuring some of the UK’s finest culinary talent this autumn and winter
Hungry for a dose of edible entertainment? With events and gatherings firmly back on the menu in the UK, the iconic retailer Fortnum & Mason has partnered with William Sitwell Supper Clubs to host a series of delectable dinners, showcasing some of the country’s best chefs as well as up-and-coming stars.
Taking place monthly, in a different Fortnum’s outpost each time, each dinner will be hosted by William Sitwell – food critic for the Daily Telegraph and MasterChef judge regular – who will be hosting the event alongside a special guest chef each month.
Kicking off proceedings on September 22nd will be guest chef Olivia Burt, a finalist and standout star on MasterChef: The Professionals back in 2019, who, at only 25 years old, has worked for Simon Rogan at Fera in Claridge’s, L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon Etoile in Paris and has since joined Stanley’s Restaurant as Head Chef.
Taking place at the Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon at Fortnum’s, where everyone will be welcomed with a glass of Fortnum’s Blanc de Blancs Champagne once they step through the doors, diners are in for a real seasonal treat. Olivia’s mouth-watering 4 course menu will be presented – British Burrata Curds, Torched White Peaches, Fennel Cured Pork and more – alongside perfectly paired wines and refreshed by San Pellegrino and Acqua Panna water.
Once attendees have finished their delicious meal cooked by Olivia herself, guests will enjoy an after-dinner cocktail.
Further scheduled Supper Clubs feature other top chefs, including Mike Robinson and Tommy Heaney.
On 13th October, Fortnum’s will welcome Mike Robinson to the Fortum & Mason Restaurant at The Royal Exchange. Mike Robinson is a highly regarded game chef currently operates three restaurants around the UK, including The Hardwood Arms in Fulham (London’s only Michelin-starred pub), The Elder in Bath and The Woodsman in Stratford-Upon-Avon.
The following month, on the 10th November, Tommy Heaney will take over the kitchen at the Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon. Tommy Heaney is a self-taught chef who has been cooking since childhood and has since opened his restaurant, Heaneys; the philosophy of which is centred on sharing plates and offers a daily changing menu; making the most of what’s in season and available from trusted suppliers he has built up relationships with over the years.
