A Celebration of Beef: Exmoor’s Food Heroes

Last Tuesday, The Farmers Arms in Combe Florey hosted a Celebration of Beef. And boy, what a celebration this was…..  six courses prepared by five outstanding chefs, accompanied by beautiful wines, wowed the lucky diners.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mike Griffiths, head chef at the Farmers Arms, was joined in the kitchen by Olivier Certain (Duende), Anita-Clare Field (La Petite Bouchée), Peter Mundy (The Ginger Peanut) and Tim Zekki (Duende) who created an exciting menu of the best Exmoor beef. Even the delicious dessert (by Tim Zekki) contained beef!

So here are the Exmoor Food Heroes of the night, captured by photographer Jean-Phillipe Baudey :
