Pop Up Restaurant at our holiday cottages in Suffolk

Michelin Star Chef hosts Pop-Up Restaurant & Cookery Class here at Woodfarm

May 2013 saw a highly successful weekend here, where we hosted Suffolk’s first Pop-Up Restaurant, here in Woodfarm House.

Mark Peters

Michelin Star Chef Mark Peters served up a range of mouth-watering 6-course meals in the comfortable setting of our beautiful 500-year-old farmhouse.

Mark is a Michelin Star trained Chef of 27 years and has experience in fine dining, corporate catering, and event catering on small and large scales along with team management. He now runs a bespoke event catering & private chef service called Just Imagine Foods. He uses the finest seasonal, local and sustainable ingredients bought to you from quality suppliers to provide clients with great, simple, well-presented food.

Mark loved conjuring up his courses in the farmhouse kitchen and it went down so well with our guest diners we have decided to do it again… with a twist!
