Good Food Month

Proudly presents....

 
 

Wellness
VS
Wickedness

 
 
 

Two award-winning teams from the Grand Hotel and the Golden Door go head-to-head in a six course gastronomic battle royale of good vs evil.

In one corner: messiah of wellness James Knight, head chef from the Golden Door – with a passion for freshness and quality organic produce he's renowned for his skill in making “healthy” a decadent pleasure and eating a mindful journey to fulfilment.

In the other corner: the sultan of sin, the Grand’s own head chef, Andrew Beddoes, will pull no punches in his wicked line up of immoral culinary delights. Each chef will present three stunning dishes matched with superb wines making this a chef battle not to be missed
