With just a week to go until the third Exeter Foundation evening with Michael Caines MBE, the menu and accompanying wine have been confirmed.

The menu, which has been devised by Michelin-starred chef Michael Caines MBE and Sandy Park’s Head Chef Sam Billson, includes luxury canapes, followed by a decadent five-course menu and petit fours and coffee to finish.

Ingredients have been sourced locally, including chicken from Darts Farm, vegetables from Dart Fresh and a selection of South West cheeses. The complementary wine has been specially selected to match each course by South Devon-based Tolchards.

The event takes place at Sandy Park on Thursday 9th November and raises funds for the Exeter Foundation – the Chiefs’ charity which distributes money raised to charities and organisations throughout the City and surrounds.

 

 

Speaking about the event, Michael Caines said: “This is the third time we have held this evening; it’s always great to collaborate with the Sandy Park team and come up with a seasonal menu showcasing the amazing local ingredients we have available to us.”
