London Comes to Berkshire

The chefs are booked. The culinary preparation has kicked into action. The Champagne is on ice & five London-based chefs, hosted by The Vineyard’s John Campbell, are already signing their menus for ‘The 2007 Chef’s Table’. Each evening at The Vineyard will start with a champagne reception followed by dinner & a selection of fine wines. Plasma screen televisions in the dining room will relay images of the chefs preparing food for each table. Later guests will meet and talk to the chefs & take home their own personal signed menu. As part of this year’s event, The Vineyard at Stockcross has created a recipe for a truly decadent experience, giving The Chefs’ Table guests the chance to enjoy the ultimate VIP gourmet experience with luxury accommodation, champagne, homemade chocolates & fruit on arrival. They will get the rare opportunity to mingle with the chefs over some canapés on the terrace before sitting down for the Chefs’ Table.
