GOURMET TASTING TOUR

LOCAL PRODUCE

Brelade is based in the county of Kent, so we are accustomed to being surrounded by fine ingredients. After all, Kent has been known as the "Garden of England" for more than 400 years – recognising its abundance of orchards, hop fields and market gardens.

The undulating terrain, fertile farmland and numerous country estates provide cultivation for an array of high quality local produce. A single vineyard now boasts 23 acres of eleven different varieties of grape, producing some 80,000 bottles of red, white, rosé and sparkling wines. While Brogdale is home to the National Fruit Collection of 150 acres and some 4000 varieties of apples, pears, plums, cherries, quince and more.

The county boasts talented culinary artisans, trading in cheese, honey, a variety of breads, wines and hoppy beers. And with 350 miles of beaches, cliffs and coves Kent has one of the longest coastlines of any county in Britain.  Local fisherman harvest from the sea the famous Whitstable oysters, Dover soles and a wide variety of white fish landed daily.

There is an absolute pleasure in dining on exquisite food accompanied by fine wines. This is a weekend or midweek break of plenty – opulence in accommodation, wining and dining.

There is, in Brelade’s opinion only one thing to exceed this - learning the art for oneself. On this Gourmet Tasting Tour guests could acquire a more detailed knowledge of Kent's high quality local produce, and practice some key culinary skills, to enhance their own enjoyment or to share.

We think this is a perfect opportunity for guests to rebalance their mind, body and spirit as they indulge themselves in fine-dining, spa treatments and the extensive grounds of Eastwell Manor, an elegant 5* Country House hotel located in the Kent countryside.
