Angela Hartnett to launch the first Fortnum & Mason Chef’s Dinners series
This month Michelin starred Chef, Angela Hartnett, will launch the first of the Fortnum & Mason Chef’s Dinners series. On the 21st of November a wonderfully seasonal White Truffle Dinner is due to take place in The Fountain restaurant. This year’s yield is exceptionally precious and scarce as white truffles are impossible to cultivate, only coming from wild sources. The white truffles Angela will cook are sourced from the Alba region.
The dinner series will continue throughout the winter as the renowned venue aims to highlight the very best Chefs in the UK cooking with the very best seasonal produce.
CEO, Ewan Venters, is excited about the new concept and commented, “We are delighted to welcome Angela Hartnett one of the country’s leading female Chefs to The Fountain and launch the Chef’s Dinners. The passion for the best seasonal produce is at the heart of Angela’s work and the ethos of all Fortnum’s offer. We love the friendly and informal approach Angela takes to cooking, a natural fit for Fortnum’s!”
Each guest will receive a signed copy of Angela Hartnett’s Cucina: Three Generations of Italian Family Cooking. The menu cooked on the night in The Fountain is a 5-Course Tasting Menu comprising:
- Roasted Pumpkin Soup, Sautéed Scottish scallops
- Carnarilo Risotto 18 month Parmigiano Reggiano
- Guinea Fowl, Celeriac Puree
- Baked Vacherin Grilled Charlotte Potatoes
- Pear Torta, Vanilla Ice Cream
- Coffee and Biscotti
Dinner is priced at £150 per head and guests can choose from a wine tasting menu of carefully selected glasses to go with each dish. For bookings, please telephone: 0845 602 5694
