Sundays in Autumn spell r-o-a-s-t. After a busy weekend out and about at open air markets, brunches and walks by the river there’s nothing better than the smells of chicken and gravy filling the house. Until the next day when the smell remains but the food has long been demolished, except for the carcass, which you will or will not get round to making stock with, and a pile of tins and dishes patiently waiting by the sink.
Whilst we’re all for the homemade Sunday roast, Archie’s @ Brixton East is hosting a one-off Sunday Lunch on the 18th October. Head Chef William Deal is cooking up a storm; a roast but not as you know it, and will be on hand to help with wine pairings. A Bloody Mary kicks off the feast with a Smoked Haddock Kedgeree Scotch Egg to lead you on to the main event; Braised Feather Blade of Beef, Potato & Celeriac Mash, Roasted Beetroot, Crispy Kale and Runner Beans. If you’re not a meat-eater then they have catered to you too; a Chickpea and Carrot Scotch Egg for starters and Open Ravioli with Squash, Porcini Mushrooms and Spinach. Rounding everything off is a Plum and Almond Tart with Plum Coulis and Crème Fraiche.
Every guest will leave with a goodie bag and a chance to enter a champagne prize draw and kids are welcome. What’s not to like?
Sunday 18th October 2015, 1pm – 6pm. Brixton East 1871, 100 Barrington Road, Brixton, SW9 7JF
