This summer, on Sunday 3 July 2016, two acclaimed chefs, Alain Ducasse and Tom Kerridge will host a one-off Sunday lunch experience at The Hand & Flowers in Marlow. For £80 per person, guests will enjoy a four-course menu comprising of alternate dishes prepared by acclaimed Executive Chef at London’s Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester, Jean- Philippe Blondet and the talented Aaron Mulliss, Head Chef at The Hand & Flowers.

Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester offers contemporary French cuisine with a professional bespoke and friendly service orchestrated, under the guidance of Alain Ducasse by an industry-leading team including Executive Chef, Jean-Philippe Blondet and Restaurant Director Damien Pepin. One of the UK’s most prestigious restaurants, awarded 3 Michelin stars, diners indulge in unrivalled cuisine and impeccable service. A modern, light and elegantly informal setting complements the restaurant’s forward- thinking approach to haute cuisine.

Alain Ducasse and Tom Kerridge were both trained in French cuisine and produce innovative dining experiences. The latter choosing to create a morecasual and informal space, but with no compromise on the quality of food, since opening, The Hand and Flowers has gained industry acclaim and became the first pub to receive two stars in the Michelin Guide.

As such, both The Hand & Flowers and Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester have an underlying synergy and hold the same philosophy of using the very best seasonal and British ingredients to deliver dishes in their own different ways. Same roots, different routes…

The menu includes a glass of Sydre from Eric Bordelet, a delicate French cider. The second tranche of tickets are now on sale and can be booked through a dedicated reservations system on The Hand & Flowers website.

The 4-course menu and a glass of cider is priced at £80, including taxes, excluding service charge to be paid on booking via alainducasse@thehandandflowers.co.uk. For those that would like to extend their stay eight bed and breakfast rooms are also available.
