Back by popular demand, Woodfired Canteen return to cook up our Opening Night Banquet, this year joined by Josh Katz of Berber & Q.

Our Cornwall-based friends Woodfired Canteen need no introduction. Husband and wife team Ben and Sam Quinn have a simple purpose “to be good people, cooking good food, for good people” and that’s exactly what they’ll be doing again for us this year. Cooking up culinary delights over an open fire, ensuring a laid-back, family affair to ease you in to the festivities.

As for Josh Katz, following the success of his foray into our feasting world, with on-site field restaurant Berber & Q last year, he returns to bring some of his slow-cooked, shwarma speciality to our Thursday night Banquet. With glowing reviews such as The Sunday Times, who stated that Josh’s dishes “are as good and enticing a collection of robustly flavoured and stoutly made food as you could hope for” and Jay Rayner noting that his “food is delicious… it tastes like you are both being kind to yourself and showing your mouth a good time,” Katz’s own restaurant Berber & Q was sure to be a success. The product of a lifelong exposure to diverse cultures and cuisines, it specialises in shawarma, slow-cooked on a rotating spit over hot coals alongside Middle Eastern cocktails, wine and beer.
