Huntsham Court's next incarnation will take much from it's environment: by taking out guests to forage for their own dinner on the house's land.
Llambias and Badham have teamed up with The F.E.A.S.T. Project, which will teach groups on corporate retreats or parties how to shoot, fish, butcher and pick food from within a 20-mile radius. Whatever they come up with - be it venison, partridge or trout from the estate's river - will then be prepared by the chef in the octagonal kitchen, its domed roof painted blue with gold stars. The size of the dinner depends on the success and skill of the foragers, who can the feast on the whole haunches of venison, a delicate salad made with herbs foraged from the garden, and puddings of berries gathered up with hungry hands.
The two-day event lets curious gourmands find out exactly where their food comes from, at the same time as learning team-building skills and reconnecting with the land - all while staying in a luxurious, homely and stylish mansion.
