Founder James Peck has been running a series of pop-up venues across the county this year, each night focusing on collaboration with local food and drink businesses.

And on October 2, Mr Peck and his team plan to source ingredients directly from Northamptonshire producers for a night of gourmet burgers and cheese at Delapre Abbey's Orangery Restaurant.

He said: 
“These events offer something totally different for anyone who loves and appreciates excellent food and drink but also wants a unique dining experience.

"The pop-up dinners inject a fun and quirky element into Northamptonshire’s food and drink scene, we feel the county needs more of this.

Tickets for the evening cost 40 a head.

Tickets for the evening on October 2 will be £40per-head and will feature a brisket burger using produce from Johnson's Butchers of Thrapston.

Mr Peck, a former military chef, served seven years in the British Army before going on to work as head chef at several award-winning restaurants in the county and in London.
