CareMoor for Exmoor Dining Club – celebrating beautifully cooked Exmoor produce
Top award-wining chefs are supporting the National Park by holding special lunchtime or evening events celebrating their use of local produce and raising funds to help keep the area special. Claire from Claire’s Kitchen, Barrie Tucker from the Luttrell Arms in Dunster and John Bradley from the Dunkery Beacon Hotel in Wooten Courtenay are among those involved. During the meal, diners will enjoy hearing from the head chef about their local suppliers and why they love Exmoor produce. Local food producers will also be telling their stories - Claire’s Kitchen is teaming up with pork producer Little Oak Farm from Timberscombe on 4th February and Secret Orchard Cider from Nettlecombe on the 10th February at Dulverton village hall.
The series of meals known as the CareMoor for Exmoor Dining Club, will take place at top restaurants around Greater Exmoor throughout the year, each with its own unique menu created specifically to celebrate locally sourced produce. The chefs will be showcasing their love of local food whilst also giving their support to the National Park by raising some funds for CareMoor for Exmoor, the authority’s donation scheme which helps keep Exmoor special, £5.00 of every ticket sold goes to Caremoor.
Dan James, Sustainable Economy Manager for Exmoor National Park said ‘The Dining club is part of our joint Eat Exmoor project which is all about spreading the message about the quality of our local food and its link with the landscapes we all love and want to conserve. We are very grateful to the chef’s hosting an event and supporting CareMoor for Exmoor, our donations scheme which helps fund specific nature, access and heritage projects.’
‘Our partner Visit Exmoor (the official tourism association) is also publishing a new, free Eat Exmoor food and drink guide and local food lovers can also sign up for a foodie E-Newsletter making sure they hear about all the latest food events going on including those under the banner of CareMoor for Exmoor Dining Club.’
The website www.exmoor-nationalpark.gov.uk/caremoor contains details of the restaurants and dates of CareMoor for Exmoor Dining Club events.
