Event Details

On 19 September 2018, Lympstone Manor will be hosting its inaugural Protégé Dinner event to celebrate the talented chefs who have trained under celebrated British chef Michael Caines during their formative years. Each of the eight hand-selected protégés will be joining Michael from across the UK and Ireland to create a collaborative eight-course tasting menu in his Michelin-starred kitchen. All of these chefs now hold the accolade of running their own kitchens at properties including the Grove of Narberth, Ballyfin Demesne and Kentisbury Grange.

The eight-courses will be accompanied by a matching wine flight perfectly selected by Michael’s formative head sommelier, Edouard Oger, presently a master sommelier at the Court of Master Sommeliers.

Commenting on this special event celebrating a collection of the chefs he has influenced throughout his career, Michael Caines MBE says‘it’s an honour and a privilege to watch chefs flourish in their careers, heading up kitchens across the UK and Ireland and growing as culinary masters in their own right. I am incredibly excited to welcome these familiar faces to Lympstone Manor to create what will be a unique and exciting dinner, celebrating the strengths of these talented protégés’.

Tickets for the Protégé Dinner start from £255 per person including the eight-course menu and matching wine flight. For guests looking to extend their visit with overnight accommodation, prices start from £735 per room based on double occupancy, including accommodation, breakfast and morning tea or coffee.
