For truly relaxing meal preparation, a personal chef is a handy kitchen accessory. Tiller Dining specialise in farm to plate in-home experiences. George Cooper is a well-seasoned storyteller, revelling in sharing the tales of each dish he creates with Tiller’s organic produce and local ingredients. There’s no need to decide, either. Menus are constructed seasonally, and all you need to do is enjoy the wine and wait for each plate to land in front of your eyes. “I love changing someone’s mind about an ingredient or hearing that a particular dish has stuck with someone for years,” says George.
Tiller can bring the (food matched) wines, and George has a wealth of local knowledge that he will happily impart while balancing micro herbs on culinary works of art. Don’t be surprised if a mysterious smokey jar makes it way to your plate – Tiller food is notoriously sensory, memorable as it is delicious. George has even been known to sling a newborn over his shoulder, allowing everyone to immerse in the dining experience. You don’t even have to do the dishes.
