YOXMAN AT WILDERNESS RESERVE – A Three Day Michelin Star Dining Celebration

Introducing Yoxman; a Michelin Star one of a kind dining experience at Wilderness Reserve in Suffolk, hosted by four of the U.K’s top chefs, with three Michelin stars between them. The three day culinary celebration will run from 8th-11th July and will serve up a menu of exceptional food and bespoke entertainment against a backdrop of stunning countryside and luxury accommodation, including an arrangement of private cottages, barns and farmhouses in amongst the 8,000-acre remote estate that is Wilderness Reserve.

Attendees can expect a full itinerary throughout the weekend, including a Laurent-Perrier champagne reception on arrival, which will kick-start the Yoxman experience. Guests will also be treated to a formal gala dinner, live music, woodland and lakeside dining, wild swimming in the lakes, a live Q&A and a chance to mingle with the chefs throughout the weekend. Complimentary fine wines and champagne will be served over the three days, all hand-selected by master of wine, David Hesketh.  Guests can also enjoy Single Malt Scotch Whisky from lead sponsor, The Balvenie, and guests will be transported throughout Wilderness Reserve by BMW.

Handpicked by Wilderness Reserve and with six Michelin Stars between them, the Yoxman chefs will be serving an array of fine dining cuisine, with a wild and local emphasis. Chefs include:
