The Stafford Guest Chef
Nigel Haworth at The Game Bird
On Wednesday 11 September, Nigel Haworth, Chef Ambassador for Northcote, the luxury hotel and Michelin star restaurant in the heart of the Ribble Valley and The Stafford sister’s hotel, will join The Game Bird team for their next exclusive Guest Chef event.
Nigel has helped define the path of modern British cooking through his championing of regional produce and traditional dishes, inspiring countless others to follow his local, seasonal model. In 1996, he gained his first Michelin star, which he has retained ever since. Nigel will be cooking alongside Executive Head Chef, Jozef Rogulski to present a collaborative five-course menu.
To start, there will be a variety of canapes, followed by dishes and flavours native to Jozef and Nigel, including Wild duck tidgy puddings with rabbit rillettes and Venison Eccles cakes. Next on the menu will be Wood pigeon with smoked hazelnut puree, pickled mulberries and bitter leaves and a Game soup with dumplings, yeast-roasted barley and venison sausage roll. A refreshing Partridge and wild watercress pomegranate-dressed salad will be followed by traditional Roast grouse. For something sweet, a Braeburn apple ‘tarte fine’ will be served alongside Somerset cider and brandy ice cream.
Tickets will be priced at £80 per person, to include canapes and the five-course menu.
