Each month, William Sitwell, MasterChef judge and Telegraph restaurant critic, will host the event alongside a special guest chef. Kicking off the 2022 series this February, Darren Broom, Head Chef at Pythouse Kitchen Garden will be delivering a stunning seasonal menu.
Darren’s career as a chef spans seventeen years, including stints with Michael Caines, Marco Pierre White and as a much sought-after private chef. He’s carved out his own food style using influences from Scandinavian food culture, the wild ingredients he forages for, British food history and the art of cooking over fire.
Originally from Devon, Darren has worked throughout the South West, developing a flair for butchery, fermentation, sourdough baking, curing and preserving. Darren’s passion lies in producing food with an unmistakable sense of terroir. For Darren, provenance is not just the backstory to his ingredients, it’s everywhere in the look, feel and taste of his food.
The evening will be hosted in Fortnum’s newest restaurant, FIELD by Fortnum’s, as Darren’s values align perfectly with FIELD’s ethos of celebrating food with real provenance and focussing on eco-friendly seasonality.
