Following the success of previous events, I'm delighted to announce some more dates for the infamous Guyrope Gourmet supper club in a tent. Taking place on 'Champ's Field' at Home Farm in Colton (near Tadcaster), I will always endeavour to use ingredients bought from the on site 'Food from the Farm' shop. Farmers Angela & Andrew Kay take great pride in their herd of Hereford cattle, supplying beef to Waitrose supermarkets as well as local butchers and selling in their own 'Food from the Farm' shop . They also have a nearby market garden and grow an amazing range of vegetables. The Guyrope Gourmet supper club is a true zero food miles dining experience.
It's an informal affair, with room at the table for ten guests. It all takes place in my tent. I cook on site in 'Nan the Van' which is always parked alongside the tent. You'll be served with a three course meal from a fixed menu. Unfortunately I'm unable to cater for allergies/intollerances owing to the ridiculously basic equipment I'm cooking on (you wouldn't get away with that at the Ivy!)
Guests are invited to contribute a set fee of £20 per head. To compensate for previous experience of 'no showers', I am asking that you secure your reservation with a £10 deposit which is payable in the 'Shop' on the Guyrope Gourmet home page (tab in top right corner). Please feel free to bring your own wine. There is of course no fee for corkage!
The dates for Summer 2012 are:
Tuesday 1st May - Dinner at 7:00pm. Please note that BBC's Look North team will be onsite throughout the evening as the event is being televised. There is a strong likelihood that guests may appear on regional TV! And here's the film that went out over most of the North of England. Largely thanks to this, the July date is now fully booked!
Saturday 14th July - Dinner 7:00pm (Fully booked)
The menus will be announced on the Guyrope Gourmet website/facebook & Twitter sites ahead of the events. Menus usually contain meat or fish and are rarely fully vegetarian.
