Here at House of Coco we love to get glammed up and head to fun parties, so we were pleased to hear about the return of Dinner Parties at Dewsall.
Dewsall Court is continuing the success of ‘Dinner Parties at Dewsall’: with Celebrity Masterchef judge Romy Gill MBE taking over the kitchen on October 20th and Masterchef 2014 winner Ping Coombes on November 17th. The parties will take place in the beautiful orangery-style conservatory at Dewsall Court; the Grade II listed celebration house, set within 15 acres of idyllic Herefordshire countryside.
Guests can expect a fabulous four course menu at both events; stylishly presented and with the opportunity to meet the chef and taste their signature dishes and specially created menus for the party. ‘Dinner Parties at Dewsall’ begin at 7pm and guests are welcomed with a Chase cocktail on arrival, specifically created for the dinner party events.
Dewsall Court’s dinner parties combine elegance and luxury with a relaxed, country house atmosphere. Despite typically being an exclusive use venue, Dewsall becomes an ‘open house’ for its dinner parties; so anyone is welcome to experience Dewsall’s charm and explore the stunning grounds. There is even the option to stay overnight in one of Dewsall’s 10 bedrooms.
Romy Gill MBE grew up in India; but her style of Indian cooking differs from that in most Indian restaurants in the UK; she specialises in using rapeseed oil to avoid the use of unnatural food colouring. When Romy moved to the UK she began hosting dinner parties for friends and running cookery classes: this led to her own opening Romy’s Kitchen in 2013. Romy was the first ever female Indian chef-proprietor in the UK and has been a judge on Celebrity Masterchef this year.
Born and raised in Malaysia, Ping Coombes grew up surrounded by food and creativity. Ping was inspired by her mother’s cookery school and he mothers love and passion of cooking. This was apparent in Masterchef 2014 with Ping winning the title and Ping has since become Malaysia Kitchen Ambassador. Ping will appear on our screens in The Good Food Channel’s Jone Torode’s ‘Malaysian Adventure’ later in the year and has recently made videos for Videojug food channel.
Since 2012 Dewsall Court’s celebrated Dinner Party series has continually sold out, growing from its local low- key origins to becoming a foodie hot ticket. More dates will be announced for 2017 during the autumn.
Tickets cost £57 per head and £155 for dinner, bed and breakfast.
