It’s all about Coal-laboration at The Coal Shed London this year. The London Bridge restaurant will be bringing in some of the finest talent in the industry for a monthly collaboration dinner, and you’re invited.
The simple concept will see chefs take the reins for one night only, working closely with The Coal Shed’s Executive Head Chef Dave Mothersill, Head Chef Chris Ditch and Head Pastry Chef Laura Petersen top come up with a creative five-course menu.
The first chef to face the gauntlet will be experimental Scottish chef Michael Bremner. Making the trip up to London for the event, he’s living in Brighton where his debut restaurant 64º has retained a Michelin Bib Gourmand since it opened back in 2014. He’s worked in Australia, Canada and London and may be most familiar to diners from his appearances on BBC Two’s Great British Menu, which he won with the chance to cook the main course at a banquet to celebrate 140 years of Wimbledon.
Bremner’s menu for the event aims to celebrate meat, fish and fire and will include monkfish, kelp butter, Jerusalem artichoke, mussel sauce and 71 day dry aged rump of Longhorn beef (for sharing) as well as braised short rib, roasted hispi, bone marrow mash, hollandaise and truffle.
If that’s whetted your appetite but you’re not going to be around this Friday for the dinner, then fear not as Tom Brown will be featuring in February’s collaboration. Having worked at Outlaw’s at The Capital before opening his first restaurant, Cornerstone in Hackney Wick, he’ll be joining The Coal Shed on Saturday 17th February (perfect for Valentine’s Day – hint). Looking ahead to March Pip Lacey, of Hicce, will be joining the team on Saturday 24th March. So there’s literally no excuse not to head to The Coal Shed for one night only and an experience to remember.
