Known for creating dishes that bring a contemporary twist to fine dining, executive chef Sam Bowser is introducing a year of tasting menus which take guests on a culinary journey, travelling through the British seasons. Each of the five menus will feature six curated dishes that celebrate hero ingredients of the season.

These ingredients provide the framework around which each tasting menu is developed, creatively ensuring the utilisation of nature’s larder when the finest quality ingredients are in their prime. Themes include British Orchard, Pickles and Preserves and In Praise of Offal, to name a few. The arrival of each seasonal tasting menu will be celebrated with a hosted supper club in The Wild Rabbit dining room with an opportunity to meet with Sam Bowser and head chef Kathryn Law.

‘Our tasting menus have been split into six themes throughout the year,’ explains Sam, ‘showcasing some of the core principles that guide our menu development and ingredient sourcing at The Wild Rabbit. The aim of our tasting menu is to highlight these practises. Each one is a representation of how we like to work; be it using the whole animal, preserving, celebrating under used cuts and utilising ingredients when they're at their peak.’
