Wylde Table – Launching August 2024

Founded by Jonathan Quicke, Wylde Table was born out of his passion for seasonal and sustainable food, and his desire to showcase the very best in local produce to like-minded culinary aficionados.

Jonathan aims to “combine some of the UK’s most revered and innovative professional chefs with spectacular locations and seasonal quality produce to create one-of-a-kind luxury food events. 

Wylde Table is the perfect opportunity for kindred spirits to come together and engage with top chefs in informal, yet incredible settings.”

Wylde Table’s inaugural retreat will take place at the exquisite 9 en-suite bedroom Duredon House, designed to the highest standards and boasting views overlooking the private estate in the heart of Exmoor, just eight miles from the North coast; the perfect setting for the first culinary escape. Guests are invited for a two night retreat between the 9th and 19th August where they can enjoy Chef’s Table experiences and behind the scenes access to two of the most exciting and talented chefs in the UK:  Kate Austen and Paddy Williams.
