Head Chef In Horto Kitchen

Chefs question time

Day: Wednesdays 10.30am – 11am, from Wednesday 19 May
Location: Kitchen Garden
No need to book – just turn up

Our contemporary fine dining restaurant, Horto uses seasonal ingredients from the kitchen garden so the menu is dictated by nature, the skill of the Gardener and the flair of the Chef.

Rudding Park guests can chat to Horto Chefs who share the history of the kitchen garden, how they use the produce in the Horto menu, including the Rudding Park honey produced by the bees in our Nuttery.

Whether you are an avid kitchen gardener or new to ‘Grow Your Own’ and just beginning to reap the rewards, it’s a great chance to get some inspiration of how to incorporate your produce into dishes at home.

Whilst ‘beekeeping skills’ don’t feature as ‘essential’ on his job description, we are lucky that our Managing Director Peter Banks is a keen beekeeper. 

Peter brings a wealth of experience on the subject and his passion for 'all things bees' is palpable, allowing us the winning combination of enhancing our guest experience and doing our bit for the planet!
