MasterChef Travel is expanding its 2015 collection of culinary holidays to include short breaks in the UK.

London with a MasterChef is a weekend break at the historic St Ermin’s Hotel in Westminster where Adam Handling, finalist on MasterChef: The Professionals 2013 is the head chef.

This is a great way of doing something very cool whilst taking in some Christmas shopping, or for a more enjoyable way to explore the January sales, MasterChef Travel is including the St Ermin’s signature afternoon tea and a five-course tasting menu with paired wines.

Adam will be cooking in the kitchen and also meeting guests during the dinner. The hotel’s rooftop is home to 200,000 Buckfast bees – as well as a unique Bee Hotel for abandoned bees – and their honey is used in numerous dishes: a pre-dinner honey-inspired cocktail is also included.

Welsh Wonders, in the picturesque Vale of Glamorgan, is the setting of a new two-night break with MasterChef Travel.

Staying in Llanerch Vineyard, home to the acclaimed Angela Gray Cookery School, guests will join Angela for cookery demonstrations using local produce, sample the still and sparkling wines produced by the vineyard, enjoy dishes created by the hotel’s chef and finish the trip with a Kitchen Challenge with the head chef.
