Making ice-cream out of wood and building a pop-up fine dining kitchen in a secret spot among the 700 acre estate at Harewood House is all in a day’s work for Josh Whitehead. He is one of the city’s brightest talents on the food and drink scene and having spent the last year at the Ox Club, the chef is about to start a venture at pastures new. After a break in Bali he will start work with the Harewood Food and Drink project which is planning to stake its own claim on the thriving industry in 2018. While some of the projects they are cooking up are still under wraps, Josh will be part of the re-creation of the walled gardens, leading collaborations with local producers and growers, developing Harewood Estate’s own line of products, staging more supper club pop-ups and – something that appeals to him the most – bringing in students from Leeds City College (where he studied too) for work experience.
