We lent one of our grills to Hix Restaurants for the marvellously mad Wilderness Festival in Oxfordshire.
Wilderness is a festival with a refreshing concept and a different drive. Designed to combat the busyness of everyday life and restore balance through forests and feasts combined with a deep love of artistry and artisans set in the rolling Oxfordshire countryside.
With a strong philosophy that food is nourishment for the soul Wilderness laid on long table banquets, a food forum and a debating venue entirely devoted to the pleasures and practices of cooking, eating and drinking co-curated by Wilderness treasure Angela Hartnett. It’s no wonder many of the world’s best chefs, restaurants and food critics flock to Wilderness.
In the spirit of our own passion for food, we lent celebrated chef, restaurateur and food writer Mark Hix, who’s known for his original take on British gastronomy, and his skilled team one of our lovely grills (an SG630) to cook up British fayre for the good folks at Wilderness.
Here’s what Mark has to say about Wilderness: “It’s a great food-led summer festival that embraces street food, restaurants and bars seamlessly.”
You can see their beautiful creations below:
