The Hind’s Head continues Guest Chef Series with autumn line up

Following the launch of the guest chef series with Ashley Palmer-Watts, Michael O’Hare and Josh Eggleton earlier this year, this Autumn The Hind’s Head is excited to announce the next line up of critically acclaimed guest chefs. These include Adam Byatt, Richard Bainbridge and Simon Hulstone, with whom Head ChefPeter Gray, will work collaboratively to create a special tasting menu each evening. The visiting chefs will showcase some of their signature dishes, which Peter has used as an inspiration to put together complementing dishes that are a little different to those normally found on the menu at The Hind’s Head.

Situated in Bray, the Berkshire village which boasts more Michelin stars than any other, The Hind’s Head is part of the Fat Duck Group under the direction of Chef Heston Blumenthal OBE.

Adam Byatt – 12th September
To start the season off chef, renowned restaurateur Adam Byatt will don his chef whites at The Hind’s Head on Wednesday 12th September. Adam’s imaginative yet truly British style of cooking often leaves guests at Trinity in awe. Having run the restaurant since 2005, Adam was rewarded with a coveted Michelin star in 2016.

Expect the perfect blend of Adam and Pete’s styles, starting with a signature dish from Trinity; warm Cacio e Pepe gougere and moving on to roast stone bass, beetroot and wild mushrooms from The Hind’s Head. Round up the evening with raspberry cheesecake with biscuit ice cream from Pete and warm honey madeleines from Adam.

Richard Bainbridge – 17th October
Next up, Norfolk’s Richard Bainbridge will be in The Hind’s Head kitchen on Wednesday 17th October. Richard is known for his pan-European classics served at his three AA Rosette restaurant, Benedicts in
Norwich. Here he makes the most of the finest ingredients available in East Anglia. Recognisable from his appearances on BBC’s Great British Menu, Richard opened the doors to Benedicts in 2005 and has gone on to receive a series of accolades since.

The team behind Benedicts will be showcasing some of the best ingredients that the East Anglia has to offer with dishes such as Norfolk mussels with local beer and scraps and game pâté en croûte with pickles and of course his winning dish from BBC’s Great British Menu 2015, Nanny Bush’s seasonal trifle with milk jam.

From Pete and The Hind’s Head team, guests will enjoy roast saddle of Highland venison with spiced red cabbage, star anise, pear and celeriac and Millionaire’s shortbread with vanilla ice cream.

Simon Hulstone – 31st October
To round up this instalment of events, the West Country’s culinary hero Simon Hulstone will bring his prestigious cooking style from Torquay’s The Elephant on Wednesday 31st October. Simon has represented his country on more than 20 occasions in culinary competitions around the world and The Elephant has held a Michelin star since 2006 and three AA rosettes since 2005. With a South Devon farm dedicated to providing The Elephant with the very best the season has to offer, guests can expect Simon to create his signature beautiful, colourful plates of the freshest ingredients.

Bringing a plethora of ingredients from the South, Simon Hulstone and his team will present dishes such as black pudding and smoked trout gribiche; and a fish course of roasted scallop, parsnip, verjus, fennel pollen and Lardo. Guests can expect stand out dishes from Pete and the Hind’s Head with the signature pea and ham soup, scotch egg and mustard mayonnaise and oxtail and kidney pudding with triple cooked chips – cooked to Heston’s famous recipe.
