Hereford-based restaurant, The Bookshop and community food project Hereford Indie Food have teamed up with catering students from Herefordshire & Ludlow College to showcase Hereford’s young culinary talents and the future of the county's food scene.
The collaborative project, ‘Story’ will deliver two exclusive evenings of delicious food at the end of February and was inspired by their chosen recipe book and own ideas. Recipe books from exceptional chefs and restaurants from around the world such as Peter Gilmore’s Organum and New York’s Eleven Madison Park, will give diners a truly innovative experience.
The evenings will have seven different students, serving up a seven course tasting menu at The Bookshop which is run by the collective Rule of Tum. Featuring some of the best ingredients and latest skills the students have developed, practiced and perfected their dishes ready for the event.
Level 3 student Shelley Weston who used Chicago-based restaurant, Alinea for her inspiration commented, “We’re really excited about the project, a little nervous of course, but mostly excited. The whole concept is a great idea and The Bookshop is such a lovely and unique venue. It has been challenging narrowing down the right recipe over the past couple of months; there are just so many great ones to choose from, though I think now we have really perfected our ideas.”
