I was contacted recently by the organisers of a pop up restaurant event that is happening in Leeds. I get emails like this all the time but this is the first time I'm writing about one, as for once, this one sounds genuinely exiting and definitely something I would go to.
Unfortunately I'm in New York (I know, poor me) when the event is happening so the organisers are offering my readers the chance to win a 5 course tasting menu for two at the event, Chateau Marmot.
All you need to pay for are your drinks. Here's a bit more about the event from the organisers:
On August the 17, 18 or 19th new pop-up restaurant Chateau Marmot is offering Leodensians a “mind blowing gastronomic experience” with the help of chef Miles Dupree, taking a break from his job rattling the pans at London’s renowned Ottolenghi.
Fresh from a celebrated sell-out run in York, for two nights and a Sunday lunch the Chateau will pop up in a secret venue in the centre of Leeds to serve up a five course tasting menu featuring creative, locally sourced, Modern British food with an international twist and new cooking techniques courtesy of Dupree: “I want to share some exciting takes on classic dishes as well as interesting new techniques and flavour pairings with people in Yorkshire this summer. Our forager in Harrogate is out raiding the hedgerows and our organic farmers in North Yorkshire are selecting their best meat and veggies for us as we speak. It’s going to be fun!”
Back to me:
The wild food and foraged stuff sounds really interesting and I'm assured there will be some beer and wine matching during the event too.
To be in with a chance of winning simply email me your favourite beer/wine and food match to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please only enter if you're free on one of the dates mentioned and live near Leeds! I'll pick a winner at random and announce them FRIDAY MORNING (10th August). Once I select a winner I'll put you in touch with the organisers to sort out the arrangements of your free meal for two.
