Gain rare insight into the five-star world of gastronomy at Hyatt Regency London – The Churchill with this upcoming one-off culinary masterclass
One for the gourmands. This April, the annual Marylebone Food Festival is set to return to London for a week of in-restaurant events and festival menus, designed to celebrate Marylebone’s eclectic dining and drinking scene. As part of the upcoming feast-ivities, five-star Hyatt Regency London – The Churchill is hosting a unique, one-night-only culinary masterclass with Head Chef Gianluca Augello.
Taking place on 29th April, the hotel’s recently renovated The Library offers a grandiose setting for a dinner masterclass like no other. Hotel Chef Gianluca Augello will reveal culinary secrets from the hotel’s restaurant, The Montagu Kitchen, with some of their iconic dishes including Quail Wellington, a take on Winston Churchill’s favourite dish, traditionally made using beef; and Globe Artichoke.
Ideal for starting the weekend on the right fork, the fun Friday evening masterclass will commence at 6:30pm with a welcome glass of Champagne and an amuse bouche to tempt the palate for the evening ahead.
Then, The Montagu Kitchen’s Head Chef Gianluca Augello will begin with an informal warm welcome talk where he will share some of the stories and inspirations for the restaurant’s dishes that celebrate modern British cuisine. Attendees will then devour succulent Quail Wellington and Globe Artichoke followed by a Q&A, accompanied by canapés and bubbles.
The setting for the evening provides the perfect backdrop for celebrating the best of British gastronomy as The Library is a space designed to honour Sir Winston Churchill’s love of travel and adventure. Admire the striking decor with Churchill memorabilia, along with the historic literature lining the walls and photographs from Sir Winston’s personal photograph albums.
Adding to the rarity of the evening, The Library is usually available for private events only, so this is a fantastic and unique opportunity to explore this enchanting room and its fascinating memorabilia.
The exclusive event is part of the wider 2022 Marylebone Food Festival (26th April to 1st May 2022). The experience boasts a magnificent line-up of in-restaurant events and festival menus celebrating Marylebone’s lively and eclectic dining and drinking scene.
A launch dinner for the week of foodie events will also take place, headed up by restaurant critic and writer Jay Rayner, where all proceeds will be donated to the charity partner, The Food Chain (TFC).
