Last Friday we were honoured to be invited as guest chefs at Freemasons, as part of their annual “Game Week” festivities. Steven Smith’s Freemasons is a quintessentially British multi-award winning inn, located in the “chocolate box” village of Wiswell tucked away in the picturesque Ribble Valley. They serve to please the most discerning palate – an ambition that has been rewarded with the well-deserved accolade of being the Waitrose Good Food Guide‘s top-ranked UK pub, and ranking in their Top UK 50 restaurants list.

Freemasons has had an annual celebration of British Game for the last 6 years, whereby they have given invited chefs the opportunity to showcase their take on this British institution, using UK’s finest game produce.

We were excited to be in a line-up including Steven Smith’s team and Michelin-starred chefs Kenny Atkinson (The House of Tides) and Josh Eggleton (The Pony and Tramp).

The setting offered the opportunity to finesse our Indian home-cooking style with European cooking techniques – a welcome challenge and departure from our usual way of doing things. Words can’t describe how thrilled we were with executing our menu in the Freemason’s kitchen… Steven’s team were incredible – true masters of their craft… Alchemists! We delivered a gastronomic adventure for our patrons… below are the highlights.
