3 Michelin Star Evening at The British Larder, Suffolk

It’s THE foodie event of the year and we are so incredibly excited and fortunate to be part of it this year! The Aldeburgh Food & Drink Festival has featured high on our agenda for the past three years and this year is no exception. When the opportunity came along for us to participate we did not hesitate for one moment. We started to think about what we could do to get involved during this very important event. The conclusion was to call a few friends – Brett Graham, Steven Williams and Maria Elia, and we came up with a wonderful program packed with lots of exciting foodie events.

On Saturday 25th September, at 11am in the morning, I will be doing a cookery demonstration at the festival.  At The British Larder, Suffolk we will also be offering a special menu as part of the fringe event during the festival; three course menu for £25. Mr.P and I will also be conducting two special cookery demonstrations at the British Larder Suffolk on Saturday 2nd and 9th October at 10.30am, at the cost of £10pp.

The pièce de résistance is on Monday the 27th, where we will offer the chance to experience the mouth-watering creations of 5 top chefs in a 3 Michelin Star Evening at The British Larder, Suffolk. To create a unique and exciting dining experience using locally sourced ingredients, we are collaborating with Brett Graham of Notting Hill’s 2-Michelin-starred The Ledbury, Steve Williams of the 1-Michelin-starred Harwood Arms in Fulham, and Maria Elia, author of The Modern Vegetarian.

The aim of the evening is to fuse culinary excellence with fresh local produce, bringing together the best of city flair and countryside flavours to create a truly unique and exciting dining experience in the heart of Suffolk. A welcome drink at 7pm will be followed by a four-course seasonal Suffolk menu created by these highly acclaimed chefs.

This event is a great opportunity for us to all get our knives out and cook, have fun in the kitchen, and show off our wonderful local supplies to the chefs from London. We have had a few interesting requests from Brett, such as fig leaves. Luckily, Richard and Jan have come up trumps and not only are they supplying us with their unusual squashes, but they happen to have a fig tree which will readily supply us with some fig leaves!

Brett will also be taking part in some cookery demonstrations during the Festival’s main weekend at Snape Maltings, on Sunday 26th September.

  6. Dave Minter. says:

    Just a thought but as I pass the ‘Larder’ every day, will access be available next week?. The roadsigns are indicating the road will be closed from 7pm through to 6am for the 3 to 4 days from Monday.

    Good Luck

    Hi David,

    Yes its a real shame that there will be road works next week. They have assured us that there will be defiantly be access to the British Larder Suffolk.

    Hope you can make it.

    Kind Regards

  8. This sounds so exciting. We’ve just finished the Wellington on a Plagte festival in town and it was a brilliant way to showcase culinary excellence. Wishing I could be there with you so hope that you’ll give us lots of lovely coverage here on the blog.
