A Feast for the Senses this Spring at Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire

March 20, 2024,
Hampshire, England

This spring, guests of Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire are invited to discover a taste of the English countryside with the launch of a brand new gelato shop. A fusion of traditional Italian culture with locally sourced British ingredients, the trolley will feature six delicious favours for guests to choose from.

Flavours will include everything from Hampshire honey, made with honeycomb from the property’s very own on-site beehives, to perfect plum, created with plums picked from the Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire orchard.

Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire will also once again open its much-loved alfresco restaurant, La Terrazza. This April, La Terrazza will offer a vibrant feast for the senses, combining the best of local Hampshire produce with classic Italian dishes.

Located on the Wild Carrot terrace, La Terrazza features a traditional pizza oven and lush countryside views, delivering a rich rustic setting, infused with warm and welcoming Italian spirit. Dishes showcase Italian cuisine, prepared with passion and showmanship in an open kitchen.

Bursting with fresh, seasonal ingredients, the new menu offers a pure taste of Italy, drawing on the culinary storytelling passion of Chef Pizzaiolo Angelo Doganieri. The Italian gastronomic culinary journey begins with stone baked pizzas, creamy artisanal cheeses and hand-baked traditional breads, complemented by a colourful selection of freshly prepared salads and fine Italian cold cuts. Diners can complete their culinary experience with an array of fresh Italian-inspired cocktails.

La Terrazza adds to a range of delicious dining options at the country estate from a quintessential afternoon tea to a perfect picnic menu, presenting an unforgettable countryside dining experience for families, couples and even canine friends.

Perfect Picnic – Delicious Dishes Combined with Sublime Views of the Hampshire Countryside

What better way to celebrate the spring than to indulge in a gourmet picnic, while overlooking the lush Hampshire countryside. Executive Chef Talha Barkin and his team have hand selected quintessential picnic fare to include in special Four Seasons baskets. Each basket includes all the necessities for a picnic: cutlery, plates, napkins, glasses and a cosy blanket.

Featuring a selection of carefully sourced local ingredients, the new picnic menu features Hampshire trout, creme fraiche, watercress on brown roll; homemade quiche with spinach and mature cheddar; vegan chocolate and raspberry mousse tart. Younger guests (and those young at heart) can also indulge in a Winnie the Pooh picnic, with a Nutella and banana, brioche roll, crudités with hummus dip, and a blueberry and lemon buckle.

The Drawing Room – A Humble Showcase of Historical Taste for an Authentic English Experience

Located in the heart of the 18th century manor house, the historically rich Drawing Room is the perfect setting to experience a traditional British afternoon tea, crafted by the talented Executive Pastry Chef Maxime Gourlain. With a selection of bespoke teas, chilled Champagnes and local English sparkling wines, guests can immerse themselves in the picturesque views of the rolling green hills while they lounge in a grand, yet homey atmosphere.

The Library Bar – A Classic Showcase for Beverage Artistry and Cocktail Craftsmanship

The Library Bar is an elegant space to unwind, socialise and enjoy a tumbler of vintage artisanal whiskey or Highball Americano cocktail, prepared by the Hotel’s expert mixologist and Bars Manager Surinder Virk, serving the art and poetry of taste. And why not soak up the fresh Hampshire air on the outdoor terrace and enjoy a nightcap with nature?

Café Santé – A Nutritional Showcase for Healing and Rejuvenation

Guests can dive into the flavours of Southeast Asia with the nutrition-focused menu at Café Santé. The vibrant, fresh taste of the colourful acai bowls and the tang of the Vietnamese rolls ensure it’s a light and lively culinary journey, mixing bright favourites with a healthy, exciting twist.

Wild Carrot Restaurant and Bar – A Nature-Infused Showcase for Immersion into the English Countryside

Named after the elegant white wildflower that graces the fields of Dogmersfield Park, Wild Carrot, open throughout the day, incorporates local and sustainably sourced ingredients. Guests can enjoy a truly British experience with Chef Talha Barkin and his team’s delicious seasonal menu, from a traditional English breakfast to the classic Sunday roast.
