Legendary chef Raymond Blanc has been commissioned to bring a gastronome’s dream to life to celebrate the launch of Mamhead House, a new luxury Devon event venue, on Friday, 19 December 2014.

One of the world’s finest chefs is visiting the county for just one night to cook for a select audience invited to the launch of the county’s latest events venue, a Grade 1 listed building near Exeter which is available for exclusive hire for weddings and private parties.

Snapdragon London have teamed up with “rhubarb” to develop this exclusive event. As a result, two-star Michelin chef Raymond, who regularly collaborates with “rhubarb”, agreed to design and prepare a special menu for the occasion.

Raymond Blanc says: “Christmas time still holds so much magic and is rife for celebration, friends and laughter. We are all in the festive mood, and what an amazing venue Mamhead House will be for ringing in the holidays.

“The menus will combine the season’s best ingredients to delight and wow

our guests, with extra little touches we cannot wait to share.”

The Mamhead estate has a fascinating history and there has been a house on this site for many centuries. Mamhead is mentioned in the Domesday Book and the ownership has passed through several distinguished families.
