As part of the Manchester Food and Drink Festival 2017 I am teaming up with my very talented brother Luke Holder head chef at Hartnett Holder & Co to bring you a Feel Good Food collaboration with a difference.

Manchester Food and Drink Festival: Feel Good Food Collaboration

Luke and I will be hosting our pop up restaurant at Trove in Levenshulme on Wednesday 4th October from 7pm.  We will be creating an evening revolving around charcuterie with matching and charcuterie

Luke will be bringing  a selection of charcuterie that he and his team at Hartnett Holder and Co cure in the heart of the New Forest.  All of their charcuterie are cured in their smokehouse nestled in the stunning Limewood Hotel gardens.

The evening will start with a charcuterie talk, where Luke will introduce the curing process and you will be able to eat a selection of their cured meats. These will be paired with beers curated by the fabulous Runaway Brewery.

Following the charcuterie tasting, indulge yourself in a three-course meal based around smoking, curing and ingredients from the beer making process.

Tickets are £35 per head and you can purchase them here 

If you have ever been to one of my Feel Good Food pop ups around Manchester you will know that your evening will be full of colourful, flavour-bursting dishes and nutritious extravagance.

A Little More About Luke

Luke has worked in some of London’s busiest and most exclusive restaurants including Orrery, The Sloane Club, and Oxo Tower on the South Bank. Luke then spent a year cooking in the 3 Michelin-starred Italian kitchen of Enoteca Pinchiorri, in the heart of Tuscany, Florence. This experience ultimately changed his philosophy on food forever and firmly placed his focus on cooking locally and seasonally, at the highest level.

A Little More About Our Love of Food

As a family we have always loved cooking together, jostling each other out of the way to get to
the stove. Every family gathering is an excuse to cook, eat and celebrate together.

We grew up in the Middle East and our dad was in incredible cook, he would travel all over the world, picking up ingredients and then coming home and creating amazing feasts. There would always be people around our kitchen table, eating, chatting  and enjoying life. He was a real inspiration to us both and gave us our passion to cook great, no nonsense, flavourful food for people.

I am excited to collaborate with Luke and cook together (professionally) for the first time.
