For the last two years, Stevie Parle and the team at Craft London have been smoking, pickling and curing, they’ve had their first honey harvest and now their Kitchen Gardens are fully up and running. Now it’s time for a new project: Thursday FEASTS.
Each month they’ll be joining forces with great British suppliers or top chefs to create a unique one-off menu with wine pairing, cocktails made using homemade ingredients and new cheeses from their suppliers at Neal’s Yard.
First up is acclaimed British chef Shaun Hill. Currently the head chef at Michelin-starred restaurant The Walnut Tree, Shaun started cooking professionally at Robert Carrier’s iconic Islington restaurant in 1966 and has since been awarded three Michelin stars. He’s also recently launched his latest cookbook SALT. Salt, as you can imagine is in an integral part of curing, preserving and fermenting that takes place at Craft London and you’ll be able to try some of the dishes from the book – the likes of pressed salmon with chard and dill pancakes, and pork in shirtsleeves. You’ll also be able to buy the book at a discounted rate and get it signed by both Shaun and Stevie.
Upcoming Feasts will be held on the 6th April and 18th May. At the former, dishes will be inspired by a Mangalitsa pig that has been living in Stevie’s garden and has been grazing on apples and acorns for a year. In May, they’ll be celebrating National Vegetarian Week with a feat of new season and unusual vegetables. And if they happen to fall on the same day as a gig at the O2 you’ll be able to get the a la carte menu too so you can head on off – they’ve got your back like that.
Thursday FEASTS at Craft London will start on 9th March with Shaun Hill and Stevie Parle cooking recipes from Shaun Hill’s new cookbook SALT – £45pp for four courses and a cocktail
