With each evening set to showcase the chefs’ passion, talent and gastronomic imagination, it’s a must-try for gastronomy lover.
Lord’s Dining Club is an exciting dining series set to honour the age-old pairing of food and cricket. The traditions of Marylebone Cricket Club will be coupled with innovative cooking from a line-up of world-renowned chefs, who continually redefine their craft and boast nine Michelin stars between them.
Tom Kerridge will introduce the series on Wednesday 25th April. As chef-patron of the extraordinary The Hand and Flowers pub in Marlow, he is the first chef in the world to secure two Michelin Stars for a pub. The incredibly popular and loveable Kerridge is also the face of many BBC series and a best-selling author.
On Thursday 21st June, Claude Bosi, a legend among his peers, will take centre stage at the Home of Cricket for the second event of the Lord’s Dining Club series. Bosi is taking the culinary world by storm at Bibendum in Chelsea, demonstrating his ability to combine highly-skilled classical techniques and the world’s best produce.
Award-winning Simon Rogan hosts the third event on Wednesday 17th October, demonstrating his signature culinary style with cutting edge techniques and innovative dishes. An industry thought leader, Simon will be using the finest ingredients sourced from Our Farm, where the produce is harvested for his two Michelin-starred restaurant L’Enclume in the Lake District, as well as recently opened Roganic in Marylebone, London.
Daniel Clifford rounds off the 2018 Lord’s Dining Club series on Wednesday 28th November. Chef-patron of two Michelin-starred restaurant Midsummer House and widely regarded as one of the most gifted chefs of his generation, Clifford will no doubt see out the year in style.
Each event will take place in the Grade II*-listed Pavilion, including a Nyetimber sparkling wine reception with a selection of canapés in the Long Room Bar, before feasting on a four-course menu in the august and historic surroundings of the Long Room.
The menus are exclusively designed by the evening’s host chef and each course is paired with a matching wine, chosen to enhance the culinary delights on offer. What’s more, a Q&A session hosted by a cricketing legend will delve into the chefs’ successful careers.
