The evening begins with a glass of Champagne on arrival followed by a six course tasting menu featuring dishes inspired by Dan, Danny and David’s time on BBC2’s Great British Menu. Guests have the option to add on Sommelier selected wine pairing options to match each dish. A raffle will be held on the evening to raise funds for Hospitality Action.
Tables are available at three sittings of 7pm, 8pm or 9pm.
Born and raised in North Yorkshire, Dan travelled the world after finishing catering college, taking jobs in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. On his return to the UK Dan worked at a number of distinguished restaurants including The Kitchin, in Edinburgh under Michelin staffed chef Tom Kitchin, and the Michelin starred Black Swan pub in Oldstead under two-time Great British Menu banquet champion, Tommy Banks. Dan won this year’s North East final of Great British Menu and is currently head chef at Fenchurch restaurant at the Sky Garden in London.
Danny got his first job as a kitchen porter at just 14 years old. He then went on to work at Wynyard Hall before taking on the role of sous chef at Kenny Atkinson’s House of Tides in Newcastle. He is now Executive Head Chef at Jesmond Dene House. He was a finalist on MasterChef: The Professionals 2014, made the finals of National Chef of the Year 2017 and the regional finals of The Roux scholarship.
David’s first job was at the Castle Eden Inn where he learnt on the job rather than training at college. After working with Marcus Bennett at Newcastle’s McCoy’s Brasserie at the Baltic, Wynyard Hall and with Michelle Roux Jnr at the 2 Michelin starred La Gavroche in Mayfair, David returned to Newcastle to open his own restaurant, Peace and Loaf. His restaurant, which offers “fine dining without the fuss” has since been awarded The Good Food Guide Local Restaurant of the Year for the North East, 2 AA Rosettes and a mention in the Michelin Guide.
