It’s all hands to the pump as organisers of Eat Drink Bristol Fashion prepare to welcome foodie revellers to Bristol from across the UK in one week’s time.
Running for 12 days from April 25th to May 7th, the ambitious pop-up project is the brainchild of Michelin starred chef Josh Eggleton of the Pony & Trap, and Luke Hasell of Tipi Events, Bristol. Together they have assembled a stellar line-up of guest chefs and restaurants to showcase the best of Bristol’s thriving food scene.
Construction of the event’s magnificent festival style tipi home begins this Friday 20th April and will take 4 days to complete. On Wednesday 25th April the spectacular venue situated in Queen Square will open to offer visitors a choice of either relaxed dining in the Pony & Trap’s “Modern British Tapas” bar (no reservation necessary) or more formal tasting menus from the ticketed events with participating restaurants.
For these ticketed events nearly 600 places have already been snapped up for both the Story organic Sunday Roasts by the Pony & Trap and the variety of guest restaurant tasting evenings. Furthermore a number of local businesses and organisations have shown their support for Eat Drink Bristol Fashion by opting to attend the all inclusive “Bristol Banquet” events.
In response to this collective demand, Eat Drink Bristol Fashion are delighted to announce that a very special event on Thursday 26th April has now been added to the bill with Bristolian master charcutier Vince Castellano teaming up with the Pony & Trap.
In a unique evening Vince and his team from Castellanos Deli will be offering a 5 course tasting menu based around the traditional French practice of seam butchery – a style that cuts along the natural seams of meat. For their main course guests will be invited to choose the cut they want from 5 week dry aged beef, Vince will then butcher the cut and finally Josh Eggleton of the Pony & Trap will then expertly prepare it.
Commenting, Josh Eggleton said:
“Vince Castellano is a master of butchery and this evening promises to be a real treat for all meat eating food lovers. I would urge anyone who is looking for a real culinary treat to come down and witness Vince at work. Seam butchery is a very complex art and there are few that can do it at all, let alone as well as Vince – we’re lucky to have him in Bristol.”
“With a week to go until we launch, everyone involved at Eat Drink Bristol Fashion is working to ensure this is an event to remember in Bristol. We hope people from far and wide will join us in the tipis for some tapas, a tasting menu or one of our famous Sunday roasts!”
This promises to be a very exciting evening that includes 5 courses, a wine flight and Moet champagne. Food lovers after a ticket should email info@eatdrinkbristolfashion.
