Our Definition of “Wild Dining” is finding the most random place to serve a lunch or dinner or any meal for that matter. Foraging unusual menus with an element of danger and/or remoteness are essential ingredients to this Midsummer night’s evening that we have created.
Tuesday 13th May 2014, we introduced our Wild Dining event to the beautiful landscape of Dorset. Dorchester’s Supper Club dined in wild terrain with catering by Jamie Jones (Head Chef and co-owner of Yalbury Cottage) who strongly believes in bringing cooking back to its purest form – and that is exactly what he did.
The event could not have gone better, it was a typical summers evening with a light breeze and a lovely scent of champagne spilling through the trees. Guests arrived to a glass of bubbly and started socialising with other local bodies and businesses.
The tables were classically dressed with white linen silver and the flower arrangements being from the fields around them! Catering was provided by Yalpury Cottage and came in the form of beautiful homemade wooden platters with local Lamb cooked four ways, dressed Greek salads and finally lemon possets with fresh strawberries accompanied by desert wine.
Our new stretch tent (which is available for hire) was lit up in red and orange up lighters creating an Indian summer vibe whilst the bunting and hay bales added that touch of British countryside.
The future plans for Wild Dining will be to hold it in various locations all over the country. From the Jurassic coast to John o’ Groats the event can go anywhere. We are thrilled to introduce it to the market this year and excited to see where Wild Dining will take both you and us.
