The awards were presented at a gala dinner in March, but Dev is waiting until November to host the celebratory feast, when much of the winning produce has been harvested and there is an abundant supply of game.
The special tasting menu, costing £49 a head will feature fresh fish of the day sourced from Sankey’s, the Tunbridge Wells winner of ‘Best Fishmonger’. ‘Meat Retailer of the Year’ Godmersham Game will supply the wood pigeon and venison. Fresh vegetables and cobnuts will be supplied by ‘Local Retailer of the Year’ Quex Barn.
Winner of three awards on the night Cheesemakers of Canterbury will represented by their Ellie’s soft goat’s cheese.
Gadds’ (‘Best Kent Beer’) and wines from Biddenden Vineyards (‘Best Kentish Wine) will also be served on the night.
Dinner concludes with coffee and petit fours from Sloe Gin Seduction a winner in the Food Product Category – Bakery & Confectionery.
“Produced in Kent has done a fantastic job in raising the profile of the wide array quality foods and drinks available locally and The of Kent Awards recognised the skills and efforts of artisans producers,” said The Ambrette’s chef patron Dev Biswal, adding, “It’s a privilege to be able to work with such quality ingredients and be able to showcase them at The Ambrette.”
The Ambrette was awarded the coveted Best Kent Restaurant Award because of its “well balanced menu, use of local seasonal ingredients, its lovely ambience and a contemporary marriage of Indian and English food.”
Other awards received by The Ambrette this year have been ‘Best Indian Restaurant’ by Morrisons magazine and ‘Best Restaurant in the South East’ by the Cobra Good Curry Guide.
