Delicacies including oyster panna cotta and seaweed doughnuts are among some of the treats included in a gastronomic feast prepared by award-winning chefs at Titchwell Manor.
The next in the series of the manor’s guest chef Supper Clubs takes place on Tuesday, November 18, and features newly-crowned National Chef of the Year, Russell Bateman, who is head chef of Hertfordshire’s three AA Rosette-winning Colette’s at The Grove.
He has been named Chef of the Year 2014 by the Craft Guild of Chefs. He joined The Grove from The Feathers in Oxford where he was appointed head chef in 2007. Prior to that, he worked in many Michelin star restaurants, including Pétrus and Auberge de L’Eridan, Capital Hotel and Restaurant and Midsummer House.
Russell has worked alongside many notable chefs, such as Gordon Ramsay, Marcus Wareing and Marc Veyrat, who have all helped him shape his own unique style.
Following Michelin-starred Mark Poynton’s October appearance at the boutique hotel near Brancaster, it’s now Russell’s turn to cook up a six-course feast with the manor’s award-winning head chef, Eric Snaith.
Guests will dine in the relaxed and informal Eating Rooms with three courses each from Russell and Eric and can expect flavours with flair, including Russell’s oyster panna cotta, scallop, apple, celeriac and coastal herbs as well as his Inaya chocolate, cep mushroom, walnut sherry and brioche dessert. Among Eric’s dishes will be his Loch Duart salmon, dashi, seaweed doughnuts, radish and turnip.
The meal, including wine, costs £65, or £60 for those who have previously attended a Titchwell Manor Supper Club.
Head chef at Mallory Court, Paul Foster, will conclude the Supper Club chef series on Tuesday, January 27.
