TOP chefs Tom Kerridge, Rick Stein and Phil Howard will appear in a special series of foodie events at Lime Wood Hotel in the New Forest this autumn.

Tickets are on sale now for Angela & Co’s Pop Ups, which see Gordon Ramsay protege Angela Hartnett, one of the brightest stars in the restaurant world, team up with a line-up of food masters at Hartnett Holder & Co.

To kick off the series, Angela will be welcoming Phil Howard, a true chef’s chef, highly respected industry figure and co-owner of The Square. He will be making his appearance on September 29 for a special pop up evening then showing his skills in a cookery workshop the following day.

It is then the turn of champion of flavour, Tom Kerridge. Entering the kitchen on October 13 to join Angela, he will be introducing his warm personality, charming west-country accent and love of big bold flavours. On the 14th October, he will be hosting his own cookery workshop offering guests the chance to see how his kitchen works.

The finale of the series sees Rick Stein OBE bringing the Cornish coast to Hartnett Holder & Co for one night only on November 3. Best known for a love of fresh seafood, he says “nothing is more exhilarating than fresh fish cooked simply”. The following day, it is the guests’ chance to see his skills up close with his cookery workshop.

Angela Hartnett and Lime Wood’s Luke Holder, with their team, create locally sourced Italian dishes with a respectful nod to the seasons.

Tickets for the pop up restaurants are £95 per person, including a drink on arrival and three course dinner.
