A trip to Adam Smith’s restaurant at Coworth Park will always be special, but his new guest chef series is set to add an exciting new dynamic to the mix.
The series – titled Adam Invites – will see some of the UK’s top chefs joining Adam in the kitchen at Coworth Park for an evening of culinary delights. Kicking things off is Alex Dilling, Executive Chef of 2 Michelin Star The Greenhouse, who will be working with Adam to create a six-course tasting menu, featuring alternating dishes between the two chefs. Highlights include morel custard with truffle, sourdough and smoked lard; crab with caviar and smoked sturgeon; turbot with cauliflower and fisherman’s sauce; and Adam’s signature chocolate soufflé tart to finish.
Following this is Tom Booton, who made history last year by becoming the youngest ever head chef in The Dorchester’s 88-year history, aged just 26. He now heads up The Grill at The Dorchester, following stints at a number of prestigious kitchens including Alyn Williams at The Westbury, L’Autre Pied, Le Talbooth and Dabbous.
The Dorchester’s bucolic cousin, Coworth Park is just 45 minutes by car from central London: a creamy-coloured, 18th-century country house set within acres of immaculate parkland. Everything here is a joy, but the food is a particular highlight. There are two restaurants: the Michelin-starred Restaurant Coworth Park and a more laid-back, rustic eatery, The Barn. Adam Smith works his culinary magic at the former, dishing up a modern British menu with French inflections. The dining room is grand yet not stuffy, service impeccable yet friendly – ‘relaxed elegance’, as they put it. Adam changes up the menu regularly, but it’s always unique, creative, and packed with seasonal British produce.
