The itinerary

You will first meet Executive Chef Ben Kelliher to discuss your personal requirements and preferences to create a plant-based seven-course menu with produce sourced at the market.

You will meet the suppliers at Turnips, who are focused on providence and seasonality, to buy the ingredients for your main course, and Palace Culture to buy vegan cheese handcrafted in Crystal Palace, London.
