Harewood Food & Drink Project announce exciting new events and collaborations

The Harewood Food & Drink Project (HFDP) have announced a number of exciting new events and collaborations in the run up to the festive season.

The team, which includesExecutive Chef and former Masterchef: The Professionals semi-finalist Josh Whitehead will be taking over the Northern Monk taproom kitchen in Leeds from 28th October to the 29th January with informal day to day plates as well as the return of their ever popular “Hidden Harewood” pop up suppers,which will be held at the brewery as part of their three month residency.

Both parties have also recently collaborated on making Northern Monk’s first wet hop beer using hops picked from Harewood’s walled garden.  The new ale will be part of Northern Monk’s “Evolution of Tradition” series and will be available at The Refectory during the residency.

Josh will also be creating a menu designed to pair with the Leeds based brewery’s unique selection of craft beers and will be looking at different ways in which the waste ingredients from the beer production can be incorporated into the menu.

Since its launch in 2016, HFDP has used produce from the Harewood Estate to create bespoke products and dining experiences, including using venison from the estates red and fallow deer, lamb from their Hebridean black sheep flock and beef from their Highland Cattle, as well as fruit and veg from the walled garden and wild foraged foods.

HFDP Director Eddy Lascelles said: “We couldn’t be more excited to be teaming up with Northern Monk, one of our food and drink heroes. Northern Monk embody everything we hold dear at HFDP, always open to trying the extraordinary and the experimental but always with an emphasis on developing tradition whilst acknowledging a rich heritage.

“Northern Monk are at the forefront of the booming global craft ale scene and we can’t wait to see what we can create together.”

Northern Monk Managing Director Russell Bissett said: “Collaboration, heritage and the drive to use progressive techniques are all key to our business, and these values align perfectly with what Eddy, Josh and the team at Harewood aim to deliver. Not only are we pouring the freshest beer from the taps, but we’ll be able to bring you the freshest food too, with ingredients grown and reared only 8 miles down the road.”
