Award-winning Chef and owner of Paris House, Phil Fanning, has announced the launch of three seasonal tasting menus, dedicated to the freshest of herbs, edible flowers and baby vegetables harvested from the Michelin-starred restaurant’s garden.

The stylish Summer Menus have also been created to showcase many of the wild ingredients discovered on the 22 acres of picturesque deer park and historic Woburn Estate, where the fine dining restaurant is set.

The Paris House garden is adjacent to the kitchen, so moments after the freshly foraged ingredients arrive, innovative masterpiece courses of Feather Blade, Anjou Pigeon and Sand Eel, for example, will be served to guests for their unforgettable dining experience.

To end on a natural high, customers can sample deserts of newly picked raspberries with milk, elderflower and honey and Thai green curry with pineapple, coconut and coriander, to really surprise and astonish the pallet.

Utilising modern culinary techniques, rare fruit and vegetables at their seasonal best are blended with traditional ingredients to create all three of the Summer Garden Menus, providing guests with the opportunity to choose from a six course, eight course or the all-out ten course Menu.

To enhance the naturally delicious Summer Garden Menus further, the restaurant manager at Paris House has sourced a flight of top quality wines to complement each dish on the menu.

Owner of Paris House, Phil Fanning commented: “At Paris House, we pride ourselves on providing ingredients foraged from our own garden, so I am delighted to be announcing the launch of the new Summer Garden Menus that have a focus on the beautiful fruit, vegetables, herbs and flowers that we are lucky enough to have available to us.

“Devoting three menus to food at its seasonal best stays true to what Paris House is all about and I look forward to delighting our customers with the natural taste combinations.”

Paris House itself was built in 1878 in a timbered mock-Renaissance style in Paris. The 9th Duke of Bedford then bought the house and shipped it piece-by-piece to the UK where he reconstructed it in Woburn Park.
