Feel as if there just isn't enough luxury in your life? Us too. One easy way to rectify that would be by booking up one of the very special chef journeys taking place on amazing vintage trains owned by Belmond. That's the company that also own the Venice Simplon-Orient Express. There are two trains in action - the British Pullman and the Northern Belle and they've put together an impressive line-up of chefs cooking on them this year.

In July Tom Kerridge will re-create the pub experience on board Belmond British Pullman- becoming ‘train publicans’ for the night. In October, Anton Mosimann of Mosimann's will climb on board to showcase his ‘Cuisine Naturelle’ using only fresh ingredients and avoiding the use of oils, fats and salt.

Finally, in November, Raymond Blanc from the critically acclaimed Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons in Oxfordshire will put on a dinner on the Northern Belle from York.

So what can you actually expect on such a swanky occasion. Well it just so happens that last year Hot Dinners tried out the Tom Kerridge train journey - read our piece on it here.

  • Tom Kerridge - 11th July 2015
  • Anton Mosimann 9th October 2015
  • Raymond Blanc - 6th November 2015

A five course dining experience with each chef costs £495 and you can book your table on board at the Belmond website.
