A guided tour led by Spier farmers Angus and Neil will reveal the inner-workings of the farm, showing how ingredients are grown and reared sustainably. Back at Spier’s historic Manor House, Chef Os will present an elegant three-course dinner made with seasonal produce available from Spier, and paired with Spier’s award-winning wines.
Chef Os trained in classical French cuisine at Silwood Kitchen, and subsequently spent time expanding his repertoire through his journeys as a culinary nomad. He has been on various expeditions in this time, working as a yacht chef in the Med, a private chef all over Europe and a food tour leader from Barbados to Bombay. Currently Chef Os is working as a private chef as well as hosting outdoor food experiences and other unique once-off culinary events.
