All of us at Stones Events have always been admirers of Ben’s cooking style and menu curation, which are only a couple of the reasons why we are so excited to have paired up with Ben for this year’s new dining experience at the Nevill Holt Opera Festival in mid-June. Guests who have booked to eat in the Kitchen Garden during the Opera will, undoubtedly, be overwhelmed by the array of mouth-watering dishes, such as Air dried cured ham and Crab, prawn, spring onion, sweet paprika, basil dressing, and chicory.

Stones Events are again joining forces with Ben Tish for a unique dining experience on Friday 16th June. The four course menu will showcase Ben’s signature approach to cooking, focussing on sharing, family style food. Showcasing exceptional dishes, for instance, Beef and summer truffle tartare, rye crisps and Spiced and charcoal grilled lamb leg, molasses and buttermilk. This innovative menu will then be available to all Stones Events clients, private and corporate, to enjoy at their own events.
