Full steam ahead: fine dining on Belmond British Pullman

by Great British Chefs 07 June 2016

With chefs such as Richard Corrigan, Tom Kerridge and James Martin cooking their signature dishes for passengers on board one of Britain's most famous trains, we take a closer look at what's in store at this year's series of Belmond British Pullman's 'pop-up' dinners.

Great British Chefs is a team of passionate food lovers dedicated to bringing you the latest food stories, news and reviews.

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.

The chefs

• 11 June – Richard Corrigan

• 13 August – Tom Kerridge

• 29 September – James Martin

• 29 October (on Belmond Northern Belle, sister train to Belmond British Pullman, departing from Chester) – Raymond Blanc

Aldo Zilli has already treated 100 passengers to his famous Italian cuisine, which celebrates the food and flavours of his native Abruzzo, but the next chef to man the galley-kitchens is Richard Corrigan, who will be cooking the most popular dishes from his restaurants Corrigan’s Mayfair and Bentley’s on 11 June 2016.

At the height of summer, Tom Kerridge will bring the incredible cuisine from his two-Michelin-starred Hand and Flowers in Marlow and second, more casual restaurant, The Coach, to Belmond British Pullman passengers. This ‘pop-up pub’ will be the third time Tom has showcased his inimitable style on the train, and is sure to be one of the most popular events of the year. Rounding off the pop-up season is ex-Saturday Kitchen host James Martin, who will be paying homage to his Yorkshire roots with a specially crafted menu in September.

Each night promises to be a once in a lifetime experience, with every one of these iconic chefs cooking the dishes they love the most on one of the icons of British rail travel. If you’re looking for an evening of unforgettable food and drink or want to celebrate an occasion with friends and family, a meal on board Belmond British Pullman will prove truly unforgettable.
