Gareth Ward, chef patron at Ynyshir Restaurant and Rooms, Wales is to cook at The Twenty Six

Gareth Ward, chef Patron of Ynyshir Restaurant and Rooms is cooking a nine-course tasting menu at The Twenty Six, Tunbridge Wells, Kent on Sunday, 17 September.
Tucked away between the golden sands of Borth Beach and the rugged mountains of Snowdonia National Park, Wales, Ynyshir is a Michelin star, four AA rosette restaurant with rooms, and is number 12 in The Good Food Guide 2018. Gareth’s menus reflect seasonal availability of Welsh and British ingredients from both sea and land, including Dyfi Valley Welsh lamb, wild deer, duck and partridge, foraged sea herbs at Ynyslas beach and wild garlic in the Cumbrian mountains. The kitchen garden provides a bounty of herbs and vegetables throughout the year.
Ynyshir is about landscape and locality and the driving force in Gareth’s food is flavour. His menus take the guest through clearings and forests, sea and beach, mountain and pasture. It is seasonal in the traditional sense - using ingredients when they are ready and pickling or fermenting, salting or preserving to carry the kitchen through Winter and into Spring. Cooking at The Twenty Six, Gareth and his team will create a dining experience to showcase Ynyshir, that takes guests on a creative journey through Wales and the British Isles.
Gareth’s nine-course tasting menu at The Twenty Six is £60 per person and will be served in one sitting for dinner on a long communal table to 26 guests. Guests to arrive at 7.30 for drinks to be seated for dinner at 8pm.
Reservations are open onwww.thetwenty-six.co.uk or call 01892 to book. A £20 deposit will be taken at the time of booking.
Further events in The Twenty Six guest chef series include Nathan Eades, Simpsons on 22 October; Luke Richardson, Sticky Walnut on 19 November and Calum Franklin, Holborn Dining Room on 3 December.
