On Sunday 13th September, the duo will be showing guests their talents, by taking guests around The Wheatsheaf Northleach’s woodland to try their hand at foraging, using maps and tips to find the best natural produce. When the team return to base, Gill will be using the foraged ingredients to create a Sunday dinner whilst Jack will use the produce to create innovative cocktails in the pop-up Ketel One Vodka Kitchen. After the exploration day and Sunday dinner with Jack and Gill, the guests will be offered tailored cocktails from Ketel One Vodka Kitchen to compliment the other guest chef’s menus, using spices, seasoning, and fresh fruit and vegetables. Guests are also encouraged to try their hand at cocktail making. Previous supper club chefs include Michel Roux Snr, Mark Hix, Fergus Henderson and Valentine Lucky_Onion_131-0980 low resWarner.
