About the Event
Guests of E2E will enjoy a rare opportunity to dine in luxury on the Belmond British Pullman with an exclusive menu created by our guest speaker, the two Michelin starred chef behind Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons, Raymond Blanc OBE.
The evening begins as you board The British Pullman’s vintage carriages alongside the UK’s leading entrepreneurs and settle into your comfortable chair with a glass of champagne. Your table is set with crisp linen and gleaming bespoke glassware. Take time to admire the authentic art deco interiors and the lush scenery outside as the train courses through Surrey. Soon your liveried steward will serve the first of five exquisite courses, each accompanied by our sommelier’s handpicked wines. Raymond Blanc is the celebrated Chef-Patron at Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons. A champion of organic and sustainable food, he has garnered multiple awards with both his cuisine and his cookery books. The convivial Frenchman will speak and pass through the carriages to stop for a chat when he has finished in the kitchen.
Limited availability for select guests of E2E.
