Festival Opening Dinner

Matt Tebbutt



7:30pm 3h
Caleta Hotel

The Oxford Cultural Collective is proud to present the opening dinner of the Sixth Gibunco Gibraltar International Literary Festival, at the Caleta Hotel on 15th November 2018. Dinner will be prepared by Matt Tebbutt, the hugely popular presenter of Saturday Kitchen, the weekly food and chat show broadcast on BBC 1.

Matt is also the presenter of Food Unwrapped on Channel 4; has filmed two series of Save Money Good Food with fellow presenter Susanna Reid; and co-presented Market Kitchen on UKTV with Rachel Allen, Tom Parker-Bowles and Matthew Fort. He put his degree in Geography and Anthropology to good use as the host of Kings of the Wild on the Discovery Channel, in which he foraged for food in amazing jungle locations around the world.

Matt was trained under culinary greats including Marco Pierre-White, Alastair Little, Bruce Poole and Sally Clarke. For fourteen years, with his wife Lisa, he ran the Foxhunter restaurant in Monmouthshire, where he was known as a passionate exponent of Modern British cooking, using only the freshest locally-sourced ingredients.

Matt has written two cookbooks, Matt Tebbutt Cooks Country and Guilty Pleasures.
