Wild Feasts at Oxmoor Farm

The first of these summer cookery celebrations took place on 18 June with Dan Chambers manning the farm kitchen.

Originally from Yorkshire, Dan worked in gastro-pubs and restaurants before moving to Holland. He spent most of his years there at a little neighbourhood bistro called Preta Porta in Utrecht. He baked bread daily and worked with pastry, as well as creating a menu that changed almost daily.

From here, Dan ran the kitchen at a little champagne bar called Cava before moving back to the UK where he worked at Barletta in Margate, Four Legs in London and now Belly.

Max Mclean and Ed Tejada, both of Silo, have run a series of pop-ups this year at venues including Catalyst & Swift. With an intense focus on both sustainability and foraging, these two chefs align perfectly with both Root's up-and-coming ethos and Oxmoor Farm's sustainable, farm-to-table focus.

They will cook at the farm on 27 August.

George Williams will be showcased on 10 September, he rained at Ballymaloe Cookery School before working at the Michelin-starred River Café for a few years. His recipes are inspired by regions across Europe, with a particular love for the Italian eating culture and his night will be reminiscent of an Italian feast.

Events run from 6pm to 11pm pricing varies depending on who is cooking.
