Harewood Food & Drink Project Events Set to Return

The Harewood Food & Drink Project (HFDP) events are set to make a spectacular return for the first time since February.

The next instalment of their popular “Dining Room” event series will run over four nights in September and see the award-winning team deliver a menu using food grown and reared on the historic Harewood Estate.

The events, which will take place on the 11th, 12th, 25th and 26th are the first since coming out of lockdown and the menu has been designed by HFDP’s Executive Chef Josh Whitehead, who was recently crowned “Chef of the Year” at this year’s Oliver Awards.

The menu features beef and venison from Harewood’s livestock; fruits, vegetables, herbs, spices and edible flowers from its historic walled garden and a range of wild foods foraged around the 4500 acre estate. There will be an optional drinks pairing available to purchase on the night which has been specially designed to compliment and enhance the flavours of the menu. 

The event will take place at the newly refurbished “Hovels”, an old stable block, designed and built by Robert Carr in the late 1700’s around the same time as Harewood House itself.

HFDP Managing Director, Eddy Lascelles said: “We’re so excited to be back doing what we love, bringing people together to enjoy great food and drink in a relaxed environment. 

“When we set up HFDP we wanted to create menus which were built around produce sourced from the estate. We think this is the closest we’ve ever come to achieving our zero miles food aim with every course heavily featuring produce sourced from Harewood. 

“It’s great to have access to such quality produce and to be working with such a talented chef as Josh.  It’s exciting to see his ideas developing when creating his menus and we know diners will love this tasting menu and are in for a real treat.”

Founded 2016, The Harewood Food & Drink Project was created to celebrate the heritage of food & drink production from the Harewood Estate. The company has since gone strength to strength releasing a range of products including their award-winning Harewood Greystone Gin and a range of beers made in collaboration with Yorkshire based breweries. 

As well as their popular pop-up dining events, the team also provide private and corporate dining as well as running the popular Muddy Boots café in Harewood village and more recently the Courtyard Café and Terrace Tearoom on behalf of Harewood House Trust. 

Tickets for the September events are priced at £80 each for the full nine course tasting menu and are available to purchase online at www.exploretock.com/harewood.  For more information on the Harewood food and drink project visit www.harewoodfoodanddrink.com
