Event description
The Sitwell Supper Club presents: A Feast of Game by celebrated Somerset game chef Tom Godber-Ford Moore

About this event

The Sitwell Supper Club is delighted to announce the first event of February: a Game Feast cooked by celebrated Exmoor game chef Tom Godber-Moore Ford. Tom's array of dishes present what he calls 'wild food' in spectacular, delicious fashion. From a wild mallard salad and apple-brined pheasant to a rye and cobnut cake with wood sorrel , Tom will change the way you think about game forever!

Tom and his team will cook your dinner outside on a hanging frame grill and, as ever, the four-course feast will be accompanied by wines selected by your host William Sitwell.

Tom, born in rural north Wales, trained at Leiths Cookery School in London before travelling, cooking and eating around Europe for several years and then working as a private chef. He is now game chef for Loyton who run a portfolio of local shoots. His infectious passion for the countryside is distilled onto the plate with great effect.

Meanwhile, your host William Sitwell is one of Britain's foremost food writers. Restaurant critic for The Telegraph he has been a regular judge on the BBC hit show MasterChef for almost 20 years. His supper club in Somerset has quickly become a firm favourite for lovers of great food, great wine and great times!

Dinner takes place in the converted Cow Shed at William's Somerset home, Rooks Nest Farm. As a diner you'll take your seat, marked with place cards for you and your party, on one long table.

Drinks are from 7pm. The event ends at 10.30pm.
