Fire up your palate
Psst! The latest, greatest and super-new pop-up foodie nights you'll want to know about.
Fab-tastic Whatley Manor has had a makeover, and we at Muddy were lucky enough to be one of the very first bods allowed a snoop around. As part of their new funky look, this gorgeous country house hotel has gone and put itself firmly at the top of the pop-up foodie night pile, throwing lavish Chef’s Table-style banquets for a select few in their Green Room. Make sure you’re one of the in-crowd and book your spot now.
Each night a guest chef will host the table, where they will chop, fry and cook up culinary magic right in front of you, and a maximum of 12 guests means that these pop-ups remain seriously exclusive. Next up for their Foodie Experiences is Thai Night on 6 April or try a Taste of India on 20 April with talented chef Nikesh Patel who will whip up six-courses of curried loveliness followed by a screening of The Lion with Dev Patel and Nicole Kidman in Whatley’s very own cinema. The chef’ll bring you desserts there, too.
22 April sees French Wine Tasting – discover perfect summer wines and the flavours of Provence, in association with Vintopia, Tetbury, and if that doesn’t get you sozzled there is Japanese Night on 25 May – Craig Lunn brings his wealth of Asian cuisine knowledge to The Green Room, creating crafted plates of fresh and delicious Japanese cuisine.
Now, here’s a biggie #intheknow tap-the-side-of-your-nose bit of goss…rumour has it that a few seriously cool Michelin-starred chefs will be rocking up soon to do the business and cook for you – and you can be sure they will get booked up faster than Stormzy at Finsbury Park. We are super-stoked (does anyone still say that?) to be the first to let you know about them, so get in there now and book for Tony Parkin of The West House in Kent fame on 30 April, and Gareth Ward from Ynyshir Hall in Wales on 14 May. Places are limited, so don’t dawdle peeps!
