“Eating isn’t just about food. It is about where your food is from, how it’s cooked, where you eat it and the people you’re eating with. These are the ingredients that create the experiences we remember. It is time to celebrate the World renowned quality and diversity of British hospitality and lifestyle brands” James Day, Founder of ‘GourmetXperiences’.
This is the philosophy that has led the hospitality and marketing experts at Greatest British to create ‘GourmetXperiences’, a unique collection of memorable gourmet gifts and dining experiences, each celebrating the World renowned diversity of British hospitality and lifestyle brands.
Each wonderful ‘GourmetXperience’ celebrates the best of British cuisine, from outstanding chefs, pioneering cookery schools or independent artisan food producers.
From exclusive chef experiences at Michelin-accredited venues, interactive pop-ups by chefs of distinction, experimental dining experiences, or the chance to discover rising new stars, ‘GourmetXperiences’ transforms a great meal into an unforgettable experience. Whether you’re looking to hone your skills, treat yourself or spoil someone else, we have the perfect gourmet gift for you.
‘GourmetXperiences’ is supported by some of the country’s leading hospitality figures and charities, with contributions from Raymond Blanc OBE, Cyrus Todiwala OBE, Michael Caines MBE, Shaun Rankin, Brad Carter and ICSA-accredited cookery schools including Jean-Christophe Novelli, and Leiths School of Food & Wine.
