A Tradition Revived
The Victorian greenhouse was often adapted as a place to socialise, inviting friends for afternoon tea... the greenhouse could be adapted as an additional room in which to entertain.  READ MORE about the tradition >

Landscape Cooking

Its the "art
of marrying home-grown, freshly picked produce with locally sourced meats and seafood" says Lee. Its about dishes being influenced by the landscape around you – giving mealtimes a sense of spontaneity
which can be planned for. Cook outside when ever possible.
 
For Lee, the surrounding landscape and new edible garden – with views originally designed by Lancelot 'Capability' Brown – is the inspiration for his food & drink experience at London Syon Park. An experience which is true to the delicious heritage of the estate, continuing Waldorf Astoria’s unparalleled ‘art of dining’ legacy.




In keeping with the Victorian tradition of using the greenhouse as place to socialise, plans are underway to include a
CHEF'S TABLE
in the greenhouse at London Syon Park – where hotel guests will be able to dine in unique surroundings and experience Lee Streeton's famed 'Landscape Cooking'. Both Lee Streeton and Robert Stoutzker (of London Edible Gardens) will be on hand to talk to guests – who will be hear, and see, first hand where their food comes from – and how it gets to the table.
