We’re thrilled to announce that multiple award winning chef Rob Kennedy will be joining us for the Winter Gastronomy Evening to dazzle diners with his culinary skills.
Having previously spent 10 years as Executive Chef at the Prestige Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, and supporting the Wimbledon Championships, he has gone on to cook for members of the Royal Family including HM Queen five times.
More recently, Rob has represented Compass Group and the National Culinary Team of England in the Culinary Olympics in Erfurt, Germany. He has scooped four World Olympic medals, including two Golds (this being just a few accolades out of 85 culinary awards Rob has achieved in the last ten years).
If you haven’t already, make sure you book now as to not miss out on Rob’s gastronomical delights.
Our region’s beef and lamb are known for their flavour and tenderness and coupled with the best in vegetables and other delicious ingredients, you are sure to have an exceptional night. The evening will celebrate the West Country Beef and Lamb PGI status. PGI (Protected Geographical Indications), was started 15 years ago by a group of West Country farmers who understood that there was a special quality to the meat produced in the West Country region (Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, Dorset, Somerset, Devon and Cornwall). Simply put, the animals need to have been born, reared and finished within the region and fed a predominately, forage-based diet.
Why is this status important? Well, it puts our wonderful produce on the map for quality for consumers as the first choice in beef and lamb. The South West has more days of rainfall that anywhere in the UK which keeps the lush grasses and flowering meadows, (the South West has 57% of all the meadows in the UK), growing all year. This changes the fatty acid profile of our beef and lamb meat by increasing its omega 3 and 6 content. This all creates a unique and nutritious meat for chefs to use to create sumptuous dishes.
Date: Friday 15 November 2019
