Chef Biswal announces East Kent Culinary Tours

London: The Cook’s Tales Holidays, the travel arm of chef-patron Dev Biswal’s  The Cook’s Tale restaurant in Canterbury, has announced a 9-day culinary tour of East Kent aimed at bringing overseas – and domestic visitors from other parts of the UK –  to sample the best food and drink produce that East Kent has to offer.

Biswal is renowned for his modern fine dining venue.  It serves unique dishes that fuse traditional Indian cooking, with deft touches of international cuisine, designed to showcase seasonal ingredients sourced within 30 minutes of the venue.

Overseas guests will be collected at Gatwick or Heathrow and transported to the Abode Hotel in Canterbury.

The trip will encompass a seafood picnic in Whitstable; punting along the River Stour, numerous restaurant meals; vineyard and micro-brewery tastings; a tour of the historic Deal, Dover, Walmer and Dover castles (with an optional balloon ride); Canterbury Cathedral; medieval feast; artisanal farm shopping trip for gifts and ingredients for a hands-on cookery class.

The itinerary includes an overnight trip to London with  guided tour, a pre-theatre dinner and a West End show

On the last night, the trip concludes with Dev presenting a spectacular farewell tasting menu in his award-winning restaurant.

The in-bound trips are a natural progression of Dev’s culinary holidays organised by The Cook’s Tale to Croatia, Morocco and India plus his local food-based ‘Kent Experiences’ catering for visitors to the area and cookery school.

“We’re blessed with some of the finest food and drink produce to be found anywhere in the country,” said Biswal, adding, “The range of top-quality meats, seafood, fruits and veg, beers, ciders and wines are sublime – and all found in an area outstanding natural beauty and rich history – it’s a chef’s delight.”

‘The Cook’s Tale’ name pays homage to the character of apprentice Perkyn Revelour, in Geoffrey Chaucer’s C14th ‘Canterbury Tales’ anthology, who is “rather fond of wine, women and song”.

The inclusive price for the 9-day tour is: £2,460 per person when sharing.  £2,975 for solo travellers.  The Cook’s Tour Culinary Holidays are ATOL protected.
