Good chefs love a challenge – especially when it means they can get out of the kitchen and cook a one-off dinner in some very unique surroundings. That’s why some of the biggest names in the UK food scene have snapped up the chance to cook on board Belmond British Pullman – an historic train that offers passengers a taste of true 1920s luxury.
The 2016 ‘pop-up’ dinners are a series of evenings that bring Michelin-starred and celebrity chefs into the galley-kitchens of Belmond British Pullman, with its art deco interiors and all the mod cons that train passengers once enjoyed.
Every dinner will kick off with a Champagne reception at Belmond British Pullman's exclusive private lounge in London Victoria, before guests take their seats in one of the lovingly restored original carriages for an evening of fine food. The menus feature a full tasting menu of the chefs’ signature dishes alongside expertly matched wine pairings, served as the train makes a round-trip through the beautiful British countryside.
