Seasonal Socials launched at Wild Carrot
To celebrate the launch of each new season’s menu, Wild Carrot Restaurant and Bar at Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire is inviting guests to their quarterly Seasonal Socials. The evening dining experiences are designed to celebrate local ingredients with a taste of the restaurant’s upcoming menu and a hand-picked selection of the finest food and drink producers in the county.
Wild Carrot’s Seasonal Socials will be hosted quarterly in Fox Hollow, the stylish private dining room adjacent to the restaurant; close to the open kitchen, featuring windows into the main dining room and its very own private terrace. Each event will highlight two key seasonal ingredients grown or produced locally, chosen by Restaurant Chef Adam Fargin, in a four-course menu carefully crafted for guests to experience what’s to come in Wild Carrot that season. Guests will also have the opportunity to discover one of Wild Carrot’s favourite local food and drink producers, as co-hosts for the evening who will introduce and share a taster of their products with all guests.
The first Seasonal Social will take place on Thursday 8th February, when Wild Carrot will be teaming up with Winchester Distillery, producers of spirits including Twisted Nose Gin, who will work with the bar's talented mixologists will create a bespoke welcome cocktail for guests to enjoy before sitting down for dinner.
Wild Carrot’s first Seasonal Social will focus on Wild Carrot’s Winter menu, highlighting local venison and pear as the chosen seasonal ingredients; from goat’s cheese and potato pressing, served with smoked duck breast and caramelised pear to begin, to rich venison loin served with red cabbage and apple puree, potato terrine and spiced game sauce for main course, and caramelised pear tart, served with shortbread, clotted cream and apple brandy ice cream for dessert.
The Winter Seasonal Social at Wild Carrot will take place on Thursday 8th February, from 7pm. £58.00 per person for four courses and welcome cocktail. For reservations, please call +44 (0)1252 853100 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
