Little Dunmow's Flitch of Bacon set to sizzle at Pub in the Park festival
Essex’s first Michelin star restaurant, Little Dunmow’s Flitch of Bacon, will be popping up in Hertfordshire this summer.
Its chef and partner Tim Allen, who took over at the village hostelry in early 2018, is taking part in celebrity chef Tom Kerridge’s Pub in the Park festival when it comes to St Albans’ Verulamium Park from September 13 to 15.
The Flitch, which was bought and refurbished in 2015 by Daniel Clifford, chef patron of the two Michelin star Midsummer House in Cambridge, won its star last year.
Tim’s achievements also include Michelin stars at The Wild Rabbit in Kingham, Whatley Manor in the Cotswolds and Launceston Place.
Television star Tom runs the Hand and Flowers in Marlow, the first pub in the country to win two Michelin stars.
He is gathering his favourite fellow chefs for a series of events at eight locations across England which support and celebrate local talent, as well as presenting some of the biggest names in food and music.
At each, there’ll be Michelin-starred and award-winning pubs and restaurants serving tasting dishes showing off their signature style.
Tom said: “Last year’s Pub in the Park festivals were so much fun, I can’t wait to bring excellence in food, world-class chefs, ace music and an awesome vibe to eight locations across the UK this year.”
The St Albans weekend features food from: The Hand and Flowers; the award-winning Indian restaurant near the Tower of London owned by Cyrus Todiwala Café Spice Namaste; pan-Indian cuisine from Hawkyns by Atul Kochhar; Stephen Terry’s The Hardwick; the Italian cooking of Angela Hartnett’s Café Murano; Tim Allen’s Flitch of Baco;, Jodie Kidd’s The Half Moon in Kirdford and Dylans – The Kings Arms in St Albans.
There will also be music from Tom Odell, Scouting for Girls, Razorlight, Stereo MCs, Will Young, The Rifles, Toploader and The Christians.
