Harewood Food & Drink Project returns with second pop-up dining event
The Harewood Food & Drink Project returns with the second instalment of their critically acclaimed “Dining Room at Harewood” pop-up dining event.
The event will run across four evenings: Thursday 11th, Friday 12th, Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th April with two sittings per night at 6.30pm and 8.30pm with the experience expected to last between three and four hours.
As the newest element of the The Harewood Food & Drink Project’s (HF&DP) pop-up dining offer, the award-winning team returns with “Dining Room at Harewood” with a seasonal tasting menu designed by Executive Chef Josh Whitehead, which this time will use Harewood’s Highland cattle as the main feature for meat eaters attending the event. There will also be a fully vegetarian menu available to those who request it. Harewood has a herd of 40 Highland cows who have resided on the estate since they were brought to Harewood by the current Earl & Countess in the 1990’s.
Executive Chef Josh Whitehead, who was recently shortlisted in the best chef category at the Yorkshire Evening Posts Oliver Awards, said the following about this unusual rare breed meat.
“Highland cows are about as close as you can get to a wild cow, they’re from the wilds of the Highlands of Scotland where they roam free on the land.
The cows at Harewood are 100% grass fed which gives them a rich and buttery flavor which, in my opinion, is easily as good as some of the British Wagyu herds.”
The event will take place at the Hovels building on the estate which is a converted stable block based in the heart of Harewood.
Josh Whitehead has designed a tasting menu inspired by the best that spring has to offer, wherever possible, using seasonal produce sourced from the Harewood estate.
Ticket prices include all food and there will be an optional wine flight available on the night. Tickets are £70 per person which includes a welcome drink. To book your place on this unique event go to: https://www.exploretock.com/harewood.
HFDP Director Eddy Lascelles said:
“We were overwhelmed by the feedback we received from guests at our last Dining Room event and we’re excited to be returning with the next instalment this Spring. It’s great to get the team back together. Josh’s menu will use the best that Harewood can offer and diners will be in for a real treat with Josh indulging his creative talents.
The Dining Room concept is a simplified version of our flagship “Hidden Harewood” events which gives Josh scope to truly show off his talents. Fans of the “Hidden Harewood” series will be pleased to hear that we’ll be returning with the next instalment this summer.”
Harewood Food & Drink Project Executive Chef Josh Whitehead said:
“As always we will be using as much produce from Harewood as possible for this event. We always select what’s available and at it’s absolute best so you’ll be able to get a true taste of Harewood during this pop-up event. Expect meat from Harewood, vegetables from the walled garden and wild foods from the estate as well.”
