Stephanie Moon’s Great British Menu at Rudding Park

On Wednesday last, I was invited to Rudding Park, Harrogate to watch the Great British Menu featuring our own Stephanie Moon in the hotels luxurious  mini cinema and then Stephanie’s own Great British Menu was served in the Board room upstairs at Rudding Park.

We took our Nyetimber into the Cinema and popcorn in union flag cups was served before we watched The Great British Menu, the Haymakers Nidderdale Lamb episode!  A running commentary of oohs and awes from Stephanie as she heard Nigel Haworth’s behind the scene comments to all the dishes.

We retired to the board room for The Great British Menu…

BBC2 Great British Menu is this year working with The Big Lunch, a Big Lottery funded community street party initiative, run by the Eden Project.  Last year the best part of a million people took part in a nationwide one day event that encourages people to cook and eat with their neighbours.  Inspired by this, the Great British Menu Chefs are battling to create spectacular sharing dishes, platters that will get everyone talking, proving food has the power to bring us all together for the best street party ever.  The People’s Banquest will be part of a wider street party in Leadenhall Market, London where food groups will be serving up delicious street party dishes for people to enjoy.  Street party and street food enthusiasts will come along and enjoy the party as well as provide food at the event.  The Big Lunch team will help co-ordinate this event.

On Sunday 5th June 2011 Big Lunch street parties will be held all over the country and fans of Great British Menu will be able, if they wish, to cook home-cooked versions of the chef’s dishes for street parties in their own neighbourhoods.

  1. How lucky to be able to taste such a great menu. I’ve watched her all week and was so impressed, really wanted her to go through.

    That has got to be one of the best looking and hopefully tasting desert ever, it would provide a real ooohhh! moment.
