Carousel, on Blandford Street Marylebone is one restaurant you can never get bored of. Why? Because the chefs are constantly changing, with different residencies happening every couple of weeks or so, blink and you’ll miss one.
Recent collaborations have included Selin Kiazim, Javier Rodriguez and Tommy Forster and guess what? They’ve just announced the chefs that are joining Ollie Templeton, resident chef and co- founder in January. Kicking things off is Uyen Luu, food writer, chef, the founder of the acclaimed Vietnamese Supper Club (and comes with a personal recommendation from Jamie Oliver!) before the talented Henrik Noren takes over on the 14th January, pioneer of imaginative Scandivian food and one of the founders of the cult restaurant GRO in Stockholm.
Finally ending January will be Tom Ryalls, who has worked at St John Bread + Wine and Moro, his menu will be inspired by Spain and Japan and includes ancient methods of preserving; think pickling, salting and smoking. His Hunger to Gap menu will feature fish and meat alongside various ‘nose to tail’ lamb dishes where he uses all parts of the animal.
2015 resolution: to visit every residency at Carousel, better get eating then…
