Following the monumental success of the inaugural Three Chefs Express service last October, the West Somerset Railway's Quantock Belle Dining Train will again host the services of three of the area's finest cooks on Monday 8th April.
Exmoor's Claire Lynch, a regular feature on the Quantock Belle, will be joined by Michelin-star chef Mark Dodson and the Wiveliscombe-based Olivier Certain, a previous Somerset Chef of the Year. The menu is set to include a Chicken and Ham Hock Terrine, Red Mullet Bouillabraise and Coq Au Vin, complemented with canapes and dessert to create a wonderful 6-course offering. An accompanying wine list and bar menu will also feature.
With an evening departure from Bishops Lydeard and strict Black Tie dress code, the service aims to once again replicate the nostalgic, high-quality atmosphere which graced the railway last October. Tables of 2 or 4 can be booked online or by calling 01643 700398
This is a one-off combination of top culinary talent which should not be missed and seats on the train are limited, so early booking is strongly advised.
