Sky by the Water chef's dinner

Guest Chef Dinner at Resorts World

If you’ve read this blog before you’ll have seen that I thought that Sky by the Water at Resorts World is rather nice. (If you haven’t, you can read about it here!). And now it’s about to get even nicer.

To kick off 2020, Resorts World’s first guest chef dinner brings Matt Cheal, head chef of Cheal’s of Henley, to Sky by the Water to host a Valentine’s weekend dinner alongside the restaurant’s head chef Aaron Darnley and
pastry chef Darryl Collins. (who, by the way, is a former Channel 4 Bake Off: The Professionals finalist).

The collaboration on Sunday, February 16th will see the trio offer a unique six course tasting menu. Starters and main courses from Cheal and Darnley will include cured salmon and crab, while mains will feature dishes including Loomswood Farm duck, parmesan gnocchi and passion fruit.

Collins will be behind the desserts and petit fours, which will include roast parsnip ice cream milk chocolate macaron with a mango compote and mango sorbet.

The last guest chef dinner was a sell-out guest dinner with Hampton Manor’s Rob Palmer

The guest dinner comes after September’s sell-out inaugural collaboration dinner featuring Rob Palmer, head chef of Michelin-starred Peel’s Restaurant at Hampton Manor.

Collins said: “We’re constantly evolving here at Sky By The Water, ensuring we surround ourselves with the best in the game from the ever-growing Midlands culinary scene. Not only is Matt a huge talent, just like our first guest chef Rob Palmer, he’s a huge asset to the region and another foodie neighbour we’re proud to welcome here in our corner of Birmingham.”

Tickets for the guest chef dinner at £75 per person including a welcome drink in the Secret Winter Garden from 6pm, with an exclusive matching drinks pairing available at an additional £30 per person.
