Introducing Braxted Park Kitchen

Venue News - 02.01.20

We’re delighted to announce the appointment of our new Executive Chef, Evan Marshall and the launch of the exciting new Braxted Park Kitchen, a dynamic and new catering brand for our wedding and outdoor events.

Evan joins the Braxted Park team from luxury boutique hotel and restaurant Maison Talbooth where he spent 14 years working as Head Chef and General Manager. Born and trained in New Zealand, Evan has worked in restaurants around the world, and these global experiences have influenced and shaped his cooking style and techniques. He is passionate about using locally sourced, seasonal produce to create exciting and diverse dishes and dining experiences, a vision that mirrors that of Braxted Park Kitchen.

Launching this January, Braxted Park Kitchen will ensure Braxted Park’s exceptionally high standards are always achieved and will specialise in bringing wedding catering to life. The new brand has a strong focus on locally sourced food, including fresh seasonal produce on the Braxted Park Estate, and Executive Chef Evan will be working with the estate’s gamekeepers to create menus that are seasonal, fresh and exciting.

You will be able to choose from a number of catering options to delight your guests, including fine dining style dishes, sharing boards, grazing tables, and a formal American BBQ served at the table. As an alternative interactive option, guests can even carve their own joint of meat, choosing between locally reared beef and pork, chicken or lamb. Evan has also devised a delicious plant-based menu, giving vegetarian and vegan guests varied and exciting options to choose from.

When it comes to evening food choices, the diverse Braxted Park Kitchen menu will offer a number of exciting new choices, from an “Eighties Buffet” with a twist through to Wood Fired Pizza and an authentic Asado Grill, inspired by South American flavours and ingredients.

Duncan Clark, owner of Braxted Park says:
“We are excited by the delicious, seasonal menus that Evan will be creating under the new Braxted Park Kitchen banner. We are very lucky to be surrounded by some of the country’s best food producers and will be taking full advantage of this, and our estate really is its very own larder, with a good supply of fresh seasonal produce here at Braxted Park which we will now be able to incorporate into our menus.”

Evan Marshall says:
“I am delighted to be joining Braxted Park; it’s a stunning venue and the weddings and events team has such a great reputation and the launch of the new Braxted Park Kitchen brand gives us the opportunity to bring events catering to life, introducing some new and exciting flavours and menus.

“The new brand will have a focus on creating a very interactive experience, with sharing boards, grazing tables and guests carving their own joint of meats all playing a big part of the menu. We’ll also be moving towards using local suppliers, and I am looking forward to seeing what we can create using the wondered food produced here on the Braxted Park Estate.”
