MasterChef, the pinnacle of amateur cheffing! The intense high-pressure show has contestants and viewers sweating as they battle it out. And now it’s your chance to watch them in action, front of you.
Six MasterChef finalists will be showcasing their signature summer menus as The Jam Shed Supper Club hits a new rooftop venue. Offering the perfect summer’s dining experience with a spectacular view of the River Thames, the MasterChef finalists include: London-based DJ Steve Kielty, duo Alexandra Jorge and George Kallias, Nawamin Pinpathomrat, David Crichton, and food writer Emma Spitzer. It’s an opportunity to taste the culinary creations by some of Britain’s best up-and-coming chefs, plus some unique menus.
Steve Kielty will kick things off with a two-week residency, serving dishes such as cured trout and Herefordshire brisket. The duo that is Alexandra Jorge and George Kallias are coming together to create the next best thing in food fusions – Portgreek (and it’s already created a bit of a buzz on socials, I’m intrigued to try some). Nawamin is bringing Thai-influenced, unusual dishes. David Crichton who’s created the brand, Fine Dining At Home, where his recipes are easily recreated so that everyone can eat fine dining from the comfort of their own kitchen. Finally, food writer Emma Spitzer is very experienced and skilled around the kitchen, as she was a finalist in 2015.
To add to the vibrant setting, guests will be sit at communal tables, sharing dishes and small plates which will be matched with the fruit-filled flavours of Jam Shed Shiraz, amongst other beverages. There will also be a selection of inspired wine-based cocktails available including pre-dinner aperitifs on an outside terrace space that’s just perfect for a sight of the sun going down.
In addition to having a fun night out with friends and family, diners will be supporting The Springboard Charity, which brings disadvantaged and underprivileged people into sustainable employment within hospitality, leisure and tourism. The Springboard Charity trainees are working with contestants in both the kitchen and front of house to learn essential skills and help you enjoy your night.
So a good cause, a good menu and some very good chefs. Sounds amazing.
From July 24 to September 8, 2018 at St Paul’s Pavilion, Royal Festival Hall, Southbank
