The Race For The Best Seat At The Restaurant Is Over

Issue 99

Everyone gets the best view. We've all been there. While one side of the table is admiring the view or watching the steady flow of people coming and going, the other side is facing a wall. It can make or break the entire occasion.

But, what about if everyone had the best seats and the most interesting or dramatic view?

How about sitting amongst the sand dunes on a Northumberland beach, or what about looking down onto Grasmere from the top of the Lion and the Lamb, or following the route of Hadrian’s Wall.

And why not have to worry about what you should eat.

There is a solution. Why not have a meal prepared by a top local chef…and why not enjoy that meal in a place where everyone can enjoy the scenery?

Oh and you’ll have been directed along the route by an experienced guide who knows some of the best places in the region to grab those stunning views.

A healthy walk in the fresh air with lunch provided along the way. That is exactly what you get with Chris Reay and his team at Fells’ Kitchen.

Chris has been a chef in the North East for over 25 years and in 1998 he formed his own company…Epicurus (www. epicurus.co.uk…which has grown into a highly regarded catering, equipment hire and staff hire company.

“The idea initially started as something I was doing with friends and family,” said Chris. “We’d go for a hike and, because of my background as a chef, I was invariably ‘volunteered’ to sort out the catering. Word spread as to what I could do and before I knew it I had people asking whether I could also provide them with lunch in a remote area. I’ve spent many years walking and camping in The Cheviots and The Lake District, so could always suggest somewhere really interesting and frequently in a place where they’d never been.

And that was when I set-up Fells’ Kitchen. I lead people out into the hills or coast, and serve them lunch. I cook them a gourmet meal over a wood fired stove.

And you’ll be in safe hands. Chris is a qualified Mountain Leader and can now safely take groups of people into the hills and mountains of the UK.

It’s hard to think of a more relaxing but healthy way to clear your head and get some exercise when you also know that at some point Chris will create a true gourmet meal which is very likely going to have a backdrop that you could never expect to see in a High Street restaurant.

And of course, having been a time-served chef for over 25 years, you can ask Chris to come-up with something that is your favourite dish, or perhaps there’s something you’d like to impress your partner with. Or how about using Chris as a works outing? Put it this way, your clients or colleagues won’t forget the unique experience.

Oh…and if you are by chance reading this and love the idea of what Chris can provide…but you come from outside the North East of England…not a problem. Chris is happy to travel anywhere in the UK by prior arrangement.

The best idea is to go onto Chris’s website… www.fellskitchen.co.uk…and check out the shop page for general bookable experience days.

Alternatively, for private bookings, you can contact him directly to discuss possible dates & locations. This is best if you have a group of up to 6 or 8 and want to organise a special birthday, corporate day or event for someone.

Fells’ Kitchen – catered outdoor adventures; a unique experience of exhilarating exercise with nature as your background, and then relax with a meal prepared in front of you by one of the region’s most experienced chefs.
