Chef Damian Wawrzyniak’s House of Feasts Becomes Five Star Destination for Diners

House of Feasts, the first restaurant from Polish food pioneer and TV chef, Damien Wawrzyniak has confirmed its space as a five-star destination for diners just 18 months after opening. Having recently welcomed inspectors from the Michelin guide, the Peterborough venue has quickly become one of the most in-demand tables in the East of England with foodies travelling from as far afield as Scotland, Manchester and London simply to sample Chef Wawrzyniak’s seasonal takes on Polish classics with a British twist.

Nestled in the countryside, decorated with hand-painted murals paying homage to Poland’s rugged peaks and strewn with cosy sheepskin rugs and Scandinavian blonde wooden tables, chairs and communal benches, House of Feasts has won over adventurous foodies and food critics alike with its adventurous, always changing menu and inventive take on family favourites.

Chef Damian, who has cooked for the British Royal family and Queen of Cakes Mary Berry champions local produce and fresh ingredients throughout. The ever changing menu pays homage to traditional techniques such as curing, pickling and preserving to extend the seasons, with simple ingredients elevated into culinary gems. The Michelin Guide inspectors dined on colourful cured herring and noted the Polish influences, but diners are just as likely to tuck into a crispy skinned leg of pork with pickled beetroot, rabbit Pierogi, smalec and sourdough, Atlantic herring two ways or Cambridgeshire potato and buttermilk soup.

As well as a la carte, lunch and Sunday lunch menus, House of Feasts is also much in demand for special events and exclusive occasions. Having been honoured with the Knight’s Cross, Order of Revival of Poland by the President of Poland for his tireless promotion of classic Polish dishes, and named one of the UK’s Top 10 Food Pioneers by BBC Good Food Magazine, Chef Damian and House of Feasts are also increasingly in demand on the national stage. The two will represent Poland at the World Travel Market upon the invitation of the Polish government.

A popular venue for weddings and other notable events, food fans can also learn how to cook like a pro with House of Feasts masterclasses. The newest addition to the menu is a Sourdough bread class, which takes place in the House of Feast kitchen.

“When I opened House of Feasts 18 months ago, I said that I wanted to create a space were food and drink were plentiful, ingredients fresh, dishes exciting and all served up family style, recalls Chef Damian. “I wanted to give guests something new every time and create a sense of occasion, even for those who come back often. House of Feasts has achieved all of that and more – it’s now a destination location, where guests travel from the four corners of the UK to eat with us. Our reviews have been incredible and we’re being booked for more and more exclusive events. We’ve just been named number 1 out of 100 at Great Food Club and have already sold out our next sourdough masterclass. For me, it’s always about the food and introducing diners to Polish dishes with a British twist – I’m so happy that we’re able to do that more and more.”
